Gordon Brothers Merlot 2005 Columbia Valley, Washington

List Price: $17, We Bought a Bunch: $14.99

What the Wine Critics Thought: Wine Spectator 90 Points Ripe and generous, this is a silky, plush-textured mouthful of red plum, raspberry, cream and coffee flavors that arch enticingly from the first sip through the long, round finish. Drink now through 2013. H.S.

What We Thought: Aromas of raspberry and blackberry lead to classic palate of rich blackberry and dark chocolate supported by supple tannins. Plenty of true Merlot character without any of the flabby sweetness that infects so many of today's Merlots.
