Buena Vista, Merlot, 2004

This 2004 Merlot from the Carneros region (Napa Valley) smells very nice. The taste was a bit below my expectations: a bit watered down at first. It takes a little while to fully appreciate its quality. I'd definitely drink it again and for $17.99 even buy it again, but because of its unimpressive taste, it's not my first choice for quality gourmet wine. It went down well with a seasoned salmon and a salad, though (yeah, fish goes well with red).
