Kenwood Sonoma County 2007 Merlot, $11.69-$15.99, 89 points, shades just shy of Bordeaux in color, with more purple, near opaque at the core, and a yet remarkably broad clear rim.
Bright red and black fruit (mostly black currant) with sweet cooking spice are aromatic.
The medium-plus body is lush, has fair acidity, coats with smooth-mild tannin, and is still big on boysenberry, blackberry and black currant with just a hint of smoky red meat.
Finishes fair with a diminishing palate, a more noticeable spiciness, and a touch of mint.
I have always been a fan of Kenwood's red wines; one of my first appreciated Pinot Noir wines was Kenwood, and with such an amazing Quality-Price-Ratio, I doubt that you'll go wrong buying their red wines.
