One of us watched the movie Sideways the other day, and hearing Paul Giamatti vocally express his distaste for Merlot wines, we decided to take that as a challenge and dive head first into some for ourselves! We invited Sean Ballinger from Bear Creek Winery over to get his expert opinion this ‘controversial’ style that saw a huge decrease in sales for a time thanks to that particular film. We even get our hands on some home made wine from Julie Wilson, and we couldn’t be happier with this eclectic bunch we try today.
In this episode we sample and review Dark Horse 2018 California Merlot, L’Agnostique French Merlot, Marco Felluga 2016 Italian Merlot, Chai De Bordes 2018 Bordeaux, Chateau Belles-Graves 2010 Grand Vin De Bordeaux, and a 2019 DeLaHunt Family Competition Wine Merlot.
