One of the seven deadly sins.
Another casualty of our NY dinner at Quality Meats. Pride, Merlot, Moutain Vineyards, 2006.
Now now I know, Merlot ain't fashionable, but you know, it ain't so bad. You have to look for good growers. And I enjoyed this wine. It's juicy, you know in a blackberry jam sort of way. Merlot is funny because I'm always trying to figure out exactly WHAT it tastes like. A little green like Cabernet, but not as tannic, and not quite as cassis like...
Pride is a solid wine for a special occasion because it's $55.99 at Wine Sellar in San Diego.
