2017 Josh Cellars Merlot

July 19, 2019 - Norman Bentley

Bright cherry red color and bright cherry red taste, makes this affordable California Merlot most enjoyable. The 2017 Josh Cellars California Merlot is definitely a winner! The blend is 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, and most of the grapes come from Sonoma and Mendocino Counties.

The nose is fragrant, with the aroma of a basket of freshly picked fruit. The flavors are intertwined, but are mostly cherry and plum, with just a little red raspberry for character. The finish is fresh and fruity, with a touch of oak to dry it out, as it lingers on the palate. The alcohol content is 13.5%, and Norm's score is 89.

We enjoyed this California Merlot with a big plate of Fettuccine and Meatballs with Marinara Sauce, sided by a fresh avocado, tomato and romaine salad.

score: 89

price: $12 - $16
