Ravenswood Merlot (2006)

I am finishing this California Ravenswood Merlot that we opened last night. I was pleasantly surprised both last night and tonight at this wine because generally Merlots are a bit too soft  for my tastes. However, this merlot is quite exceptional. It has a fresh, intense plum and cherry vanilla aroma. On the palate is a  full, round, ripe berry flavor with mouth-watering acidity (crisp and clean), followed by  a soft, chocolaty spicy finish with chewy tannins, which adds to the enjoyment of this wine.

It is a Monday evening, start of a new work week. I am reheating a pot of soup that I made last week for our dinner. Simple, but delicious. We’ll eat our dinner and check out “House”  —  one of my favorite TV shows.

    I enjoy your blog very much. I fowarded to my daughter so she can get ideas of what to cook and drink for dinner.
    My only suggestion is that you also included what you pay for the wine in your comments.
    Keep the good work. Regards, Joseph

      Hello Joseph, Thank you very much for your comments. We will take you up on your suggestion and start mentioning what we pay for the wine. (This will take some discipline on our parts to remember to write the price on the wine bottle before we put it on the shelf.)

      Excellent suggestion and thanks again. I hope your daughter gets some good ideas for wine and dinners!
