You’ll notice I did not include Merlot in the wine quiz. In France Merlot is world class. I don’t find many California Merlots I like. I find them — how should I put this? — lacking in guts, a little sweet, a little flabby. I never can forget the line Paul Giamatti got off about Merlot in “Sideways.” If you have recommendations on Merlots you like, please share.
