My good friend Alex got me a bottle of wine! (He may have been attempting to bribe me, because he plays in my D&D game). This is Sbragia Family Vineyards 2008 Home Ranch Merlot (and some dice).
It comes from this vineyard.
Here are some amateur tasting comments: This merlot is a little sweet, and a little tart, with notes of cherry. It is warm and mellow. It has no legs and very little aroma. It has a caramel tint.
Verdict: delicious. I would drink it again. Thanks Alex!
