Old House Vineyards Merlot – 2002

Origin: Central Virginia, Culpeper

Nose: Black Cherry, Licorice, Cinnamon, Chocolate

Taste: Cherry, Earth, Clove

Mouthfeel: Medium body with nice silky smooth tannin structure

Finish: medium to long, very nice with slight pepperyness

We picked this up at Old House a few months ago, stopping by the winery on a whim. The merlot was the favorite of the day so we picked up a bottle. Honestly this bottle we opened was better than I remembered, not saying that what we tasted was bad, just that is was a decent merlot. This bottle was definitely better than average, yielding excellent fruit up front and a great mouthfeel with an excellent peppery finish. We enjoyed this with our friends Craig and Carrie who were up from Raleigh for the weekend. $20.00

    I couldn’t agree more. The Old House Merlot is very good. We have had it before several times and enjoy visiting Old House.

    Hello John,

    I have a bottle of this in the wine fridge and have enjoyed a bottle of it before and it is everything you say.

    We enjoy visiting Pat over at Old House, he is quite a story teller.

    Happy Sipping!
