‘I Am Not Drinking Any $%&*#!’ Merlot, Bonny Doon Vineyard

“It would seem to be a cold day in climate changèd Santa Cruz that a Merlot would pass the portals of Bonny Doon Vineyard. And yet… one must (as painful a proposition as this might be) remain open to the possibility that the The Cépage That Dare Not Speak Its Name might (gasp) be somehow not just bearable, but in fact, utterly delicious – soft, luscious and plush (not not in a slatternly way), well-structured, and even, dare I say, reasonably complex. You may well be looking at me sideways for saying it, but I will be drinking some $%&*#! Merlot.” –Randall Grahm
