Merlot Tasting Smoking Loon 2007 Video Rating Review


Video Tasting rating and Review of the 2007 Smoking Loon Merlot


Grapes to Your Glass

Grapes in your Glass

Merlots are making a comeback
after the “Sideways” thrashing.

So I decided to take one for
the team and give a mass
produced corporate Merlot a
try, to see if the resurgence was
based on anything more than just
the ups and downs of the market.

Hmm, uhhh, maybe.

Here is the Wine Miser reveiw of
the 2007 Smoking Loon Merlot
from the infamous (to me) Don
Sebastiani and Sons.


1st, Love the label – brilliant.

alcohol – 13.5 %

Color – very nice lighter Plum

Smell – Off notes of Cinnamon and Turpentine and smoke

Tastes –
~

Initial attack – Blueberries

Mid Palate – Hollow,dry

Finish – abrupt

overall – Blueberries, cinnamon and smoke

Price – $8 at the Rite Aid in the Pearl (Portland)

Wine Miser rating – Uhh – 86 points for the price point,

it’s in the better half of what you can get.
