2007 B & G (Barton & Guestier) Reserve Merlot


I had not heard of this vineyard before but wanted to give it a try during the holidays.

Sourced from the Languedoc region in France, this wine had a somewhat jammy nose with a oaky very delicate finish.

Unless you find it for a great price I would probably pass on this one.

TheXPRT Wine Review Rating – 79 out of 100.

2007 St. Francis Sonoma County Merlot


This one snuck up on us. Purchased this 2007 merlot on a recommendation. Glad we took the recommendation, this wine has a great start and a very smooth finish. We purchased this at our local wine store for around $15 and it was well worth it. We paired it with a spicy pasta dish and it was spectacular. With a note of generous fruit, hints of chocolate and a mouth filling finish you can’t go wrong. Buy this one if you see it.

Overall TheXPRT Rating – 91 out of 100
