Seattle Wine Blog

This blog is dedicated to commentary on all aspects of wine, especially short entries to help you find the best wines without the usual hype and spin. These are my frank, independent opinions, usually based on tasting wine at a public event, off the shelf or at the winery.

Wine Of The Week - 2002 Red Diamond Merlot

From a new winery in the Ste. Michelle wine group, this Merlot was blended with some Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc by winemaker Marcus Notaro to produce a quality Merlot at an unbeatable price( about $10). Not as light and elegant as many Merlots, this wine has a little more structure and spice than you would expect from a Merlot at this pricepoint which makes it great with food - hamburgers, pizza, steak, stew.
