2018 MERLOT, Fog Mountain. California
Alcohol Percentage: 14.5%
Area: This is a blend of vineyards from all around California - it's not looking to show 'terroir', it's created as a vision of what 'traditional' California Merlot should taste like.
Grape Variety: 90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot, matured for 6 months in French oak.
Producer: Fog Mountain is a brand within the 'Boisset Collection'. Jean-Claude Boisset owns a large merchant business in Burgundy and many other wineries in France and California. He is married to Gina Gallo.
Old Bridge Rating: This is not the finest or most sophisticated red on our list. What it delivers is MERLOT exactly as so many wine drinkers would really like it to be - rich, round and seductive.
