I went sailing down the red river with my woolie hat and saber tooth tiger fang necklace.  There was no need for a life preserver because the river was booze.  Merriam Vineyards 2005 Merlot was the choice.  This was one of the finer Merlots that I have had to date.  The flavors were well balanced and I was able to feel the fruit.  The 14.2% action made for high seas and blurred vision, perfect conditions for the Russian River.  I have yet to go to Russia, but if the country was as good as this wine with the word Russia on it then I'm in.  For the mean time I will just dress how I think Russians dress and drink in their honor.

The beat goes on my friends and for this selection I went tone def.  The action on this Santa Ema Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 was something to be put in jail next to the pedophiles.  I chose this one thinking the Chile meant cool but I was wrong.  The flavor profile was something the the Welch's grape juice girl could have put together.  I think that this wine needed to stay on the shelf until it became legal age.   If you happen to have this wine or get it as a present save it until your two bottle deep so you don't have the disappointment I had.

Until the end of the next bottle...
