Sonoma Friends forever.

Friends.red Sonoma blend 2013 photographed by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • Cheers to four generations of the Pedroncelli family farming and making wine in Dry Creek Valley, nearly 90 years, and their mission to quietly create authentic wines at incredibly reasonable prices. In the hands of the third generation, itís now a 70% woman-owned company. Friends.red Sonoma blend 2013 is an unreserved, easy-going blend of Merlot, Zinfandel, Syrah and Petite Sirah. Itís a ten dollar bottle of some the best Sonoma has to offer. Friend this red.

Toad for the Hollow days.

Toad Hollow Russian River Merlot Richard McDowell 2013 on Winewaves & More.
  • Cheers to Toad Hollow's approach to delicious wine which is interesting, fun, and affordable. Toad Hollow Merlot Richard McDowell 2013 opens with penetrating aromas of dried cherries, cranberries and cedar that lead forward to lots of fruit and spice on the palate, good acidity and a cocoa dust finish. It's officially holiday season and this wine is invited to our house.

Naparoma.

Ca' Momi Napa Valley Merlot 2014 photographed by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • "Sideways" (2004) may have caused Merlot to lose favor as Paul Giamatti's character Miles famously said, "No, if anyone orders Merlot, I'm leaving." But Napa Merlot strikes me as a very smart move because when it's good, it's great, and the prices can be quite attractive. Ca' Momi Napa Valley Merlot 2014 opens with ripe dark fruit aromas, spice and perfectly roasted oak notes that bring back memories of Napa tasting rooms. This is exactly what we're looking for.

I've got friends in Merlot places.

The Velvet Devil Merlot 2014 reviewed and photographed by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • The Velvet Devil Merlot 2014 tempts you to pick it up even if you're not sure about hanging out with a Merlot. It's structured like a Bordeaux but with Washington State fruitiness.
