So I was really anxious to have a nice glass of red wine before bed last night, I opened my wine fridge, hoping to find something to suit my fancy for the evening. I noticed that I had two bottles of St. Clement Merlot and decided to open one up. I bought this wine during my last Costco run. I have enjoyed every St. Clement wine I have tried so far and grabbed two when I saw this one. And it had to be at a great price, or else two bottles would not have been an option.
Winemaker Notes: The odd thing is, I am having the hardest time locating any information about this wine online. There is nothing about this vintage on the St. Clement website. There are a couple of older vintages I ran across, but nothing about the 2013. I was also only able to find one review from another wine enthusiast online. So this wine is a mystery. I will do another search on down the road and update this post accordingly if I am able to locate notes from the winemaker.
