Trinchero Family Vineyards 2007 Merlot Chicken Ranch Vineyard Rutherford

We have made a stop at the Trinchero Family Vineyards tasting room each of our last two visits to Napa.  For those of you not familiar with the Trinchero Family, they are the owners of many wine labels that you may have seen and range from inexpensive, mass produced wine (Sutter Home) to the vineyard-select wines offered at the Family Vineyards location.  They have found a real sweet spot as this wine at $35 is an incredible value.  It’s a medium bodied Merlot that we enjoyed with our dinner last night at a local byob (look for another post soon on that) which has the smooth mouth feel and hints of clove and cinnamon.  For anyone who doubts Merlot, this is a great one to try and you’ll be hooked just as we are.
