Anselmo Vineyards 2008 Merlot

Anselmo Vineyards is located in Shasta County, one of the hidden gems in this area. I visited this vineyard with a couple of my friends to do some wine tasting and lunch. Let me say that this place was such a great find and to think it’s located in “our own backyard”, so to speak.

Pleasantly surprised on their generous pours and added touch with antipasto, cheese and crackers to accompany your selected wine flight. Didn’t really need to order lunch after that spread, but what the heck. The lunch was presented beautifully and again a generous amount for one person, I had to take home my leftovers. The staff and owner were very nice and welcoming, the owner even shared some of the wine he was sipping on, which was not part of the flight I selected.

So among the different wines I tasted, my favorite was the 2008 Merlot. This wine has a wonderful bouquet, dark ruby color, full body, and finishes smooth. This wine is one to put on my Yummy list! The bottle is quite spendy, about $30, so not a bad idea to save for a special occasion, share with a date, or perhaps have with a romantic dinner.

Looking forward to heading out there again and picking up a bottle or two.

  2. What a great web log. I spend hours on the net reading blogs, about tons of various subjects. I have to first of all give praise to whoever created your theme and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an fabulous article. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and honestly you got it. The combining of demonstrative and upper-class content is by all odds super rare with the astronomic amount of blogs on the cyberspace.
