October 2021 | The Velvet Devil Merlot by Charles Smith 2018

Our October Staff Pick was chosen by Ken!

In spirit of Halloween at the end of the month, Ken chose his pick wisely. But didn’t compromise on taste!

“When Hollywood’s surprise hit Sideways suddenly spawned anti-Merlot sentiments everywhere, Charles set out to rebuff the movie’s unflattering depiction of this great varietal. One sip of this bold, sultry creation and you’ll know he succeeded at making Merlot sexy again.” – Charles Smith Wines

It’s not just a “Smith” thing!

“As advertised, this smooth Merlot offers pure velvet, deep and delicious black fruit, cedar, tobacco and cassis. It conveys concentrated richness and yet purity and focus. It’s so good that it appears the devil made me do it.”

This wine is paired great with anything from burgers, bacon, grilled steak with all the fixens and more!
