Napa Valley, California

Despite the overhyped "Sideways" effect on Merlot vis-à-vis Pinot Noir, Merlot continues to rise in popularity. After tasting a bottling like this, it is easy to see why. The 2009 Merlot from Grgich Hills Estate boasts bright strawberry and cherry flavors with a touch of black pepper and soft, velvety tannins. It's also certified organic and biodynamic, keeping Mother Nature happy, too.

Rating: 14.5/20
