In the summer I still prefer drinking red wines, especially the well-balanced Merlots like this Gamla Merlot Reserve Galilee 2009. It’s a bit fruity, with raspberry, and cherry flavors, but still retains a slight note of cedar wood and even cinnamon. It’s medium bodied so it can go with anything from barbeque to lighter pasta and chicken dishes. And it has a generous 14.5% alcohol content so it’s perfect for sitting with a great glass over wine on a warm night watching the fireflies. Satisfying to the palate and the purse, this Merlot, at about $16 a bottle is a steal. The grapes are grown in the Galilee in Israel so no wonder those fruit flavors emerge. Get some and let us know what you think.
