Wine AdvocatePerhaps the finest Merlot Matanzas Creek has produced since the 1990s, the 2010 Merlot displays an opaque ruby/purple color along with notes of mocha, white chocolate, black currant and black cherry fruit, and spicy oak in the background. This full-bodied, opulent, seductive Merlot possesses adequate acidity and velvety tannins. Consume it over the next decade.

Wine EnthusiastThis Merlot, blended with a little Cabernet Sauvignon, is oaky and fairly hot with high alcohol. But it's delicious with flavors of blackberry and cherry jam, milk chocolate and anise. A fine grilled steak will do it justice.
