ryansnyder reviewed Alexander Valley Vineyards Merlot Alexander Valley 2002 on April 15, 2006
Blackberry, black cherry and plum skin lead the flavor array of this Alexander Valley Merlot. It contains subtle complexities that leap out at you in spurts... first root beer (more Barq's than A&W), then fresh potting soil, then cedar and finally the aroma of fresh rain on a recently burned patch of forest. Wines like this renew our faith in California Merlot.
