Starve dog lane merlot?

Ok, so let's say a bottle of wine costs around $14 and it's Merlot. How do I get the value down to the $10.00 level or the $5.00 level, knowing this in not the lowest priced wine for the price but it is what I can afford right now. Is it the value of the grapes in the wine? If that is the case, the $5.00 bottle of wine wouldn't be good value for the price.

This is my first wine purchase so there is a learning curve to it and I do know my limits.

I have heard one of the benefits is the climate and other things that give the grapes a good chance to do well. But that would be nice. If it's a question of value for the money, I don't think it can be done for $5.00.

If you want $10 Merlot, try the Meritage style Merlots. They are very affordable but there is little Merlot in them. I'm a big fan of the Cabernet Sauvignon with the Merlots and Meritage styles so I don't really have an answer for you.

The value of Merlots comes from the variety and the quality of the grapes themselves, they are not made cheaply but they are not highly priced either. Merlot comes from all around the world but is grown extensively in Australia, Argentina, California, the New World and South Africa.

There are more expensive Merlots, as with all varietals, but the quality of a Merlot is usually very good.

If you don't mind buying from Australia, it's possible to buy some great bottles of $10 Merlots from down under that are better in quality and often more interesting than wines made in California. They are the type of Merlots that go back and forth between the two hemispheres. Some of them have been known to go into barrels for several years or more, some go out when they've reached the right stage.

My favourite, when the world comes to an end, I'll be drinking the Merlots.

I just looked at the winery website for the Napa Merlots you like and see you bought a 2008 vintage. It was only at $5.50/bottle (a lot of wine, I know, but with a decent enough price/quality ratio for someone not used to drinking Merlots) so I think your luck with their quality (good) and their pricing (decent) will continue.

"The world has seen its fr share of geniuses, but rarely have we seen one quite like this. The most exciting thing about Robert Parker, the world's most influential wine critic, is his ability to make you hate him, love him, admire him, argue with him, and then, just as quickly, hate him all over agn. But if you are looking for a wine guy with a heart and a soul, as well as a sense of humor, you'll be hard-pressed to do better than Robert Parker."

Thanks for the reply. I bought 2 of the wines you posted for $40-45, the one's you recommended and got great scores from Robert Parker. I really like them, but I had to ask - where would I be in a year, so that I could judge their quality on my own? I bought them on a recommendation from a friend. I'm curious if he has one of the wines he's given a 92/93 rating, and if he does, what the quality is like. I've read some interesting comments about him and others, but I guess this is what you get with an author. I'm sure all your readers will respond to you in a much more professional and respectful manner.

I was actually in the store the other day when I saw a couple bottles in the wine section that he gave that 92/93. When I pulled them out to compare them to his other Napa Merlots, I found out that I'd been drinking a clone of that one. I really can't say that it was bad, but compared to a Napa Merlot that I bought right next to it, it was a little flat, a little thin. I'll admit that was probably due to the lower quality, but I'm not trying to be a sour grapes, just someone who like to know what he's eating. For the record, I don't know anyone who rates wines, except maybe on Trip Advisor.

On the other hand, I've seen tons of great scores from the wine critics on the internet.

I don't know if any of them are as good as Robert Parker, but I've had some really good wine from his score. For example, he gave the 2000 Domne Tempier Pinot Noir a 95 score. I've also read a few reviews on their site by the winemakers themselves.

Actually, there are two of us who rate wines, my wife and I and a couple others I know. I don't rate wines on internet, but if I'm at the store I will. That's really how we found out we liked the Napa Merlots and the Burgundies. They are one of the reasons I go there.

Now, of course you and the other poster are correct. This is the case. I've been to a lot of other places where the prices are not that different. But you can tell by tasting that the wines that are of a high quality, they always keep the prices fr. There are some of these places out there that have great prices, but the wines are of lesser quality, and the wine store owners know that they can sell more of those wines than ones that are high quality.

I've been to 3 places (including this one) where I'm confident I have been overcharged. One was a large local place where we bought two cases of wine, 1 off tasting, 2 or 3 tastings. I had no way of checking to see if I got good deals, other than by the feel of the wines. The other place was
