2002 - Trefethen Merlot
Classic Napa nose with sweet tannins
Nov 03, 2010
1 star 1 star 1 star 1 star
Review: The Trefethen Napa Merlot 2002 has a classic Napa nose of saddle, oak, dark deep red fruit. On the palate, it delivers robust, sweet tannins and adds a full smooth finish. Four stars out of five.More reviews at spiritofwine.blogspot.com.

I always look for the bottle to say Napa Valley and be priced between $10-15 dollars. I found this wine to be a great tasting and smooth wine.

Delightful mouthfeel, delicate smooth texture.  I really can't belive a wine this good is available off the shelf at your local chain supermarket (in Montana, anyway.)  Buy it by the case if you can.

This is an amazing wine for an amazingly low price.  Cannot believe how smooth this Merlot is.  Also, cannot believe it is a wine for under $4.

I would not usually buy a wine for this low price but was in a liquor store and a man was buying up cases of this wine which prompted me to ask what the deal was.  When I found out how inexpensive this wine is I didn't think it would be any good, until I tried it.  What a surprise!  Amazingly smooth Merlot and have bought three cases and enjoyed one (with friends, of course).  I am sure that once this wine catches on, the price will go up.

2005 - Long Shadows Merlot Pedestal
Another Insane WA wine
Jun 13, 2008
1 star 1 star 1 star 1 star
2005 Pedastal..another Long Shadow wine with Michel Rolland as the wine consultant. This is 100% Merlot ( I think) and has WA Pomerol written all over it. It is new world to be sure. Nose had leather, dark fruit/black berry, dirt and even a hint of rubber. Finish was seamless with wonderful chocloate. I've  had the past two vintages of this wine and this is the best. The '04 had a dirty penny finish. The '05 does not. From start to the finish it was nearly seamless and nearly flawless. This is what insane WA wines are all about.  Kudos to Michel Rollland and Longshadow. This along with the Sequel and the Pirouette, they have hit a home run.

This wine  has a nice classic Merlot aroma, soft and polite, this wine is sincere in what it brings, and for those who are patient and dig deep there is much here to enjoy. As the wine grows into itself, the nose offers some nice complexity, adding whiffs of cream. Delicious!

Good Merlot

This was another solid vintage of this Merlot.  This wine is structured book perfect. It enters the palate fruity, and from there, it goes sour sherry on the mid palate, and finishes long with complexity and firm tannins, tobacco, black pepper and spices, and a little note of oak.

This displays an appealing ruby red color with moderate thickness. On the nose it is a nice marriage of fruit and oak, very pleasant and inviting, with hints of strawberries, raspberries, and dark cassis.

This wonderful merlot had nice big juicy strawberries and cherries on the mouth and they seemed to last for days! This was easy to drink and went really well with my pork chops. It also had nice velvety texture.

The only problem I have with this wine, is that I liked it's little sister the regular merlot more and it's about $15 less than this bottle. Overall, it has big juicy strawberry and raspberry fruit with a nice mint chocolate kick on the finish.  This wine also has a little bit of chew at the end.  Still an excellent buy!

This merlot knocked my socks off.  Velvety, fruit forward, and full of sweet cedar and milk chocolate.  I could drink this wine all day everyday! The mouth feel is a medium to fuller body but it's just so smooth on the palate and such an amazing value!

2002 - Fife Merlot
Good Table Merlot
Jun 09, 2008
1 star 1 star 1 star
This would be solid for an easy to drink table wine - if the price was slightly lower. It's a little hot but nice dark plum and prune like nose. Very smooth with a great full bodied mouthfeel. Finish is only medium length but smooth. I found it had an extra layer on the finish after it was opened a few hours.

Pretty Merlot

This is a very pretty merlot from Sonoma in a very off vintage. It's showing great cassis and dark fruit character, with a hint of spice. On the downhill slide as far as youthful exuberance is concerned, it will probably slowly fade over the next 2 years.

2003 - Robert Sinskey Merlot
Off Year
Jun 03, 2008

This vintage was a big miss. It was very disappointing after the tasting the 2004 in the same tasting. It started off with a nice floral licorice on the nose only to taste like hot battery acid. After about an hour it might as well be Charles Shaw. I thought with a little breathing room this was going to be something nice and earthy. Sadly disappointed.
