Crazy Creek Estate Fidelity 2006 (Alexander Valley) wine review by (PB)
This Sam's Club purchase is a blend of 83% Merlot 16% and 1% Cabernet Franc sporting a young black cherry hue and berry filled aromas that have hints of licorice, and numerous enticing fragrances.
Palate: big first impression with loads of dark berry fruit, some cedar notes and easy going tannins. This is a tasty and easy, ready-to-drink, Merlot that is a really nice value for the $10 price tag. Not the kind of quality you would expect at this price point. The folks at Goldschmidt Vineyards can be proud of this offering.
This is definitely a buy more-kind-of-wine so raise a glass. Wine Spectator gave this wine 88 points. Indeed!
