Black cherry and red licorice aromas. Mellow, soft and supple texture.
Plum flavors with a hint of vanilla. Full bodied, in classic Merlot style the finish is long and slightly dry. Merlot has been treated like the red headed step child in the wine world for the past few years but Don, the store’s owner, informed me Domaine St. George Select Merlot outsells their Cabernet. Maybe, Merlot is making a comeback.

Originally named the Cambiaso Winery, Giovanni Cambiaso planted the first vineyards in 1928 above the
Russian River in . Since that time the soils and microclimate have proved to be ideal for premium grape growing. Over the years, the winery has undergone many changes. In 1986 the winery was renamed The Domaine Saint George Winery. In 1995 the vineyards were replanted with select clones of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The new vines produce outstanding vintages and have been named "The Best Red Wine of the Year" by wine writer Jerry D. Mead. At $11.99 the wine drinks closer to a $20 bottle. Sonoma
If you’re in the NE GA area, stop by Vine and Cheese on Friday nights for a wine tasting from 5-7. Vine and Cheese is located at
1175 Thompson Bridge Rd. NW in Tell ‘em the Wine Chick sent you! Meanwhile, I think I’m going to sneak a bottle into a nearby park and have a glass of wine on the shores of Gainesville, GA. . There the only sounds you hear are the rolling waves, the rustling leaves, the cicada and the occasional boat. It’s a great way to spend an afternoon. Lake Lanier
