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.
Santa Rita Reserva Merlot 2010 Wine Review
Rich and satisfying with velvet layers of black fruit, just the right amount of oak. Full-bodied but so very smooth. Great dinner party wine or for more casual potlucks. 4.4/5 Merlot food pairings: stews and casseroles, paellas, pastas, soft cheeses. Voluptuous Veal Wine

Grape Variety: 100% Merlot
Good plus wine with red plums and currents and a touch of black cherry over baker’s spices. The wine has medium fruit intensity and concentration with good complexity. The finish is medium and sweet. The medium minus mature tannins and medium acidity give good balance. Drink now and for 3-4 years.
|Intense, ruby-red in color with a bouquet dominated by fresh ripe fruits such as|
berries and spicy notes associated with components in the oak barrels. Mediumbodied,
very silky, and well-balanced with good acidity that lends a fresh sensation.
Long and pleasing on the finish.
