You had me at Merlot…🍇 “California Merlot. If someone were to release a word association wine themed board game, this would be a most fascinating card to pull.” – Shane McHugh, Goodman Head Sommelier & Wine Buyer
“This subject, for me and I hope many others, is one of the most fascinating subjects in the world of wine. Its history has helped to shape what we know the wines of California to be today, and for good reason!
“Duckhorn is at the epicentre of this, it has been almost since the start and up to today and has been for one reason and one reason only: quality.”
In his latest article, Shane McHugh charts the rise and rise of California Merlot via Duckhorn’s wines with winemaker Renee Ary.

I’m a little late to the party, but CONGRATULATIONS @bertblaize & @clairestrickett for creating this brilliant guide. It’s so down-to-earth and utterly unpretentious, putting the FUN back into learning how to choose the right bottle for your meal. Like we always say at @littlewine.co , learning about wine should first and foremost be fun, engaging and inclusive, and this = exactly that.
It’s got a brilliant 101 style section at the beginning which debunks basic wine terminology in a friendly way. The mention, “Crisp, Smooth? These words have no real agreed meaning. They’re mostly like padding on the back of a bottle or a menu because someone couldn’t think of anything more interesting or useful to say” made me giggle on the tube. A solid reminder to everybody to feel free to use more contextual, poetic, even enigmatic wine descriptions.
As well as individual pairing suggestions, there are also really cool flow charts (is that the right word?) such as “Chinese at a glance,” “Mexican at a glance,” “Indian at a glance,” and “Roasts at a glance,” which separates ingredients and flavours to guide you in the direction of grape varieties and regions. And it pretty much hits the nail on the head. I, for one, will definitely be serving a pork roast with Pineau d’Aunis now that we’re heading into autumn.
Bravo, what an achievement 👏📚
