People often ask me about merlot and why they should drink it? I often come back with, the varietal is very confusing. Producers often mask it with petite sirah, syrah and other more powerful red grapes to make the wine more palatable, fortunately Brass Tacks takes the approach of making one as close to the prototypical varietal as possible. The 2012 Brass Tacks is ripe, round and ready. Stays true, with its ripe red fruit aromas and flavors. I'd love this wine with a roast chicken from San Francisco's Zuni Cafe.

The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces a good majority of the state's wine. This vast district stretches from San Francisco all the way to Santa Barbara along the coast, and reaches inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley.

Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including San Francisco Bay, Monterey, the Santa Cruz Mountains, Paso Robles, Edna Valley, Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Maria Valley.

While the region could probably support almost any major grape varietiy, it is famous for a few. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel are among the major ones. The Central Coast is home to many of the state's small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as larger producers also making exceptional wines.
