Arguably their Falesco's offering for this vintage. I personally think it's better than some $40-50 bottle. Not a blind juice bomb, but has plenty of depth and layers for a Merlot. Great with Indian, Thai food etc. Chinese works, too.

The Wine Advocate
"The 2009 Merlot is one of the finest wines I have ever tasted from Falesco. It is a decidedly firm, vibrant Merlot that stands in stark contrast to the super-ripe, obvious Vitiano Rosso. Here the fruit is wonderfully precise and elegant. Jammy blueberries, blackberries, cinnamon, leather and crushed rocks are woven into a beautiful fabric. The French oak is layered very nicely, adding depth and flavor, but never overpowering the wine. This is impressive juice from proprietor Riccardo Cotarella. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2017."
