Monticello Vineyards 2005 Napa Valley Oak Knoll District Merlot Estate Grown Corley Family

I aerated this vigorously and let it then rest for about two hours before drinking.

Dark ruby color.

Oak / berry / cherry smell.

Cherry / berry flavors, juicy, delicious. Oak is always noticeable but does not dominate.

Good bottle for $29.99, matches nicely with steak and vegetables (with rice.)

I enjoyed Sideways well enough but am not convinced that it has any opinions worth basing my life on or otherwise following).
