2008 Longboard Merlot from Dakine Vineyard


Truth up front, bought this wine cause the label looked cool and the local wine reviewer had given it over 90 points.

Great label, great wine. Let it breath for a while, 20 mins or so and it makes a good difference. For an ’08 merlot bottled from the Russian River Valley this was a great wine all the way around.

The label says “wine waves and soul” and this wine has each of those. A great balance, smooth taste and great finish. Paired it with a creamy pasta dish and it was perfect. At well under $20 definitely worth a try.

The XPRT wine review rating 90 out of 100.
