Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.
Peller Estates Private Reserve Merlot 2007 Wine Review
Juicy, round and plummy plush with a lovely river of black cherry running through the core. Terrific balance with a pleasing blackberry-infused finish. 4.4/5 Merlot food pairings: grilled red meats; mushroom based dishes; rich vegetable stews; 1 year old cheddar; duck breast; pheasant; quail; venison burgers; Portobello burgers..
