The Velvet Devil Merlot 2008, Washington State - $10.99


This Merlot is made by Charles Smith and retails for $10.99/bottle at Whole Foods, where I tasted it today.

Aroma - tangy fruit
Taste - light-bodied, tangy fruit

I wonder if the bottle I tasted the wine from had been open too long, because all of the tasting notes I've seen online describe this wine very differently. Also, Charles Smith was named Food & Wine's Winemaker of the Year for 2009. Hmmm... - I'll have to try this one again, when I'm ready.
