It’s way past time for another installment of Wine Finds, where I tell you about a favorite bottle of wine that costs less than $10. I’m not a wine expert, nor have I ever taken a wine course or even attended many tastings, but I do drink a fair amount of wine. And I know what I like.
This month’s offering is a humble Merlot. I am of the opinion that a certain overhyped, overrated film greatly tarnished this old standby’s reputation. And I think it was unwarranted. The biggest sin of Merlot seems to be that it is a blend of grapes. Since I’m a big believer in stews, mutts, potlucks, and mixed-race presidents, purity doesn’t hold a lot of sway for me.
