Stop & Shop & Jack London Merlot

To the Lady I met at Stop And Shop this morning (Friday), you were the one buying the  J Lohr Cabernet Sauvignon Seven Oaks (You know who you are), in case you are still interested in the Kenwood Jack London Vineyard Sonoma County, California 2004 Merlot, $9.50, 91 points, is a great Merlot that retails for $27.99.

This is what you would have paid for the J Lohr Cabernet Sauvignon Seven Oaks, at the NHLS, on sale for $15.99.

Here are the links for comparison,

My own review of the Jack London 2004 Merlot is 91 points; This Merlot has aromas of cocoa and sweet plum, color of purple-grape-skin and plum, but the real deal is the flavor, and that is wonderful: silky and sleek, gentle blackberries and gentle spice finish. The last Merlot I tasted that was this good, cost me $27.00.

Just remember that the store purchased this wine by mistake, and once it is gone: "say good-bye."

For others interested, the Stop And Shop is in Bedford New Hampshire. This is a steal!

  1. Chablis is a Chardonnay wine from the same region of Northern France.

    There are those who still will call some Chardonnay wines from California "Chablis", but that is like calling Feta cheese from Vermont "Greek" cheese.

    They may taste similar, come from the same grape (Goats), but they still will not be the same.

    So, if you want a Chablis, you need to go to the French wine section in the store and look for Chardonnay from the Chablis region of France!
