Peju Merlot

88 Peju Province Winery Estate Bottled Merlot, Napa Valley 2005. I could immediately identify that trademark Napa Merlot flavor: berries, some cocoa hints, and then slight vanilla on finish. I could detect little tannins which would make it a nice solo drinker. This Peju is a good wine. And the price is right, especially compared to Napa Cabs which in recent years have been skyrocketing in price (especially 2004s). A a classy, elegant wine that will not disappoint. $35.
