BEST Wine Under $20 | The Velvet Devil Review (2015 Merlot)

We continue our quest for the Best Wine Under $20 with this smooth Merlot that offers pure velvet, deep and delicious black fruit, cedar, tobacco and cassis. It conveys concentrated richness and yet purity and focus. It’s so good that it appears the devil made me do it.

When Hollywood’s surprise hit Sideways suddenly spawned anti-Merlot sentiments everywhere, Charles Smith Wines set out to rebuff the movie’s unflattering depiction of this great varietal. One sip of this bold, sultry creation and you’ll know he succeeded at making Merlot sexy again.
