One of America’s Best Sommeliers Blind Taste Tests Merlots Under $15

Merlot, when it’s at its best, is a wine that’s not too dry and not too fruity. It’s round, smooth, and not too overpowering—a good selection will be supple and somewhat earthy with notes of plum. Watch Patrick nobly blind taste six different merlots you can find for less than $15: Coppola, Charles Smith Velvet Devil, Rodney Strong, Castle Rock, Bogle and Casa Lapostolle. (Spoiler alert: some wines fare better than others).
