B&E Vineyard Reserve Merlot 2008

Bottle purchased from B&E Tasting room in Paso Robles, CA,  $30

Teri: B&E Vineyard is a wonderful and friendly small family owned winery in the Paso Robles area. Driving out to the location is scenic and takes you through the rows of vine to the top of a hill where their tasting room is a small wooden saloon style building. This bottle wasn’t on the tasting list but due to some circumstantial luck we happened to be there at the same time as a family friend and this bottle was opened. I was hooked from the first sip. The flavor was full and it contained a nice soft finish with smooth tannins. If you are ever in the Paso Robles area stop by this tasting room and get pampered by the friendly hospitality and great tasting wines. 88 points

Aaron: I greatly enjoyed this merlot.  It was fuller than I expected and had thick fruit flavors with a gentle finish.  I admit that I might have been swept off my feet a little by the tasting room coordinator who definitely sold this vintage up, but it was worth it.  86 points
