Zellerbach 2007 California Merlot: Smokey Cherry & Smooth @McNabWines @TotalWine

There are many folks who shun Merlot in favor of Cabernet Sauvignon and other varietals.  I’m not one of them and actually prefer Merlot in many cases to a big Cab…in fact there are some Merlots that can stand up to their big brother – the Cab Sauv any day.  That discussion is for another time.

Last night we finished off this smooth bottle of Zellerbach Merlot which is a very food friendly wine.  It’s not a cherry bomb, but definitely has some fruit and vanilla and a lightly smokey finish.  I picked it up for $9.99 at Total Wine and it’s a great deal for Tuesday night or any other night of the week.  Cheers.
