Something about this bottle was calling me on a rainy Friday night. Here was a local winery ( Sones) making a Merlot from Santa Clara grapes and it was already 6+ years old on the shelf for $ 14.95. I had to try it. It did not disappoint being complex on the nose and rich on the pallet. This is the kind of red wine I had been jonesing for many weeks. The goodness of the wine was not too much of a surprise as Sones makes some great stuff. I'll give it 9 swiggs and it is either available where I got it at New Leaf market or from the winery in Santa Cruz.
