A superbly easy drinking rich and spicy Merlot from Washington State, and the best sub £20 new world Merlot I have ever had. The grape’s had a slating over recent years but Charles Smith has definitely put the sexy back into this varietal. I insist you make your friends drink it with you whilst tucking into a meaty meze and you’ll realise just how much it lives up to its name.
