The last two nights we worked our way through a bottle of Taylor Peak Merlot 2002. This a high end Kendall- Jackson product and my wife and I found it very impressive wine with rich black raspberry and black cherry. There is a slight bit of smokiness. I purchase this as closeout several years ago, but retail would most likely be in the $40 neighborhood. Last night we had it with had sauteed pork cutlets in a lemon caper sauce, which married very well with this full bodied wine. It is a good choice for a spurge and though expensive a good value.
