2008 Rabbit Ridge Merlot Barrel Cuvée
Appellation: Sonoma County
Tasting Notes: 100% Merlot, 13.8% ABV. Dark color, but translucent. Blueberry, dark cherry, plum nose, with some oak, but not too much. Similar flavors, fruit forward; a little oak there, but not too much. Well balanced, a little light. Medium finish. I’ve had a number of Rabbit Ridge wines and liked them all, this wasn’t my favorite of theirs. Great party wine, would work with a variety of food. Good value. A good call for Wednesday night pizza or burgers. Fun.
Price: $11.99 at Beltway Fine Wine
