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 - 2003 Gordon Brothers Merlot

Jeff Gordon may just have produced the perfect Merlot. This is a perfectly balanced wine. It is round and medium bodied with a soft smooth texture and good body. Deep mauve red, this beauty has complex flavors and tastes like creamy vanilla and raspberry swirl. There is a bit of acid and tannin in the finish. This wine will go with almost any food, but red meat is probably best, lamb in particular. It would probably be spectacular with duck and, of course, fine cheese. It has garnered high ratings, but lists for only $20 and is on sale this month at QFC for only $15.
