California MerlotCalifornia Merlot has gotten a bad rap, but much of it was earned. Miles, the character in Sideways who won't drink Merlot, wasn't saying anything we hadn't heard before.
That said, there is a lot of great Merlot being grown in California. The trick is to find the good ones floating in the ocean of bad Merlot.
That is where a great store like 67 Wine comes in. We aren't buying out of a price book, or looking at fancy labels. We taste the wines, and buy the ones we like.
