The 2008 Alias California Merlot offers a classic Merlot profile of bright cherries, ripe plums, red currants and vanilla oak with hints of cassis and spice on the finish. It's a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. The touch of Cabernet Franc enhances the berry flavors while keeping the tannins elegant and the mouthfeel balanced. This is an incredibly enjoyable Merlot delivering a classic California fruit forwardness with a sophisticated and well-layered character not found in wine at this price.

It has been said that within crisis, there lies opportunity. In 2008, a group of friends all working in wine decided to embrace the idea by forming an alliance they call the "Cult of 8." They have embraced the true spirit of the négociant: securing multi-year contracts with several quality vineyards and wineries at prices deemed unimaginable a few years ago. They've also been allowed to produce their own wines at some of the most prestigious and state-of-the-art wineries in California. Their unique agreements ensure consistency and quality in every bottle and every vintage of Alias wines at extreme value. It's a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. The touch of Cabernet Franc enhances the berry flavors while keeping the tannins elegant and the mouthfeel balanced.

Producer
Alias wines are made by Cult of 8, a young & hungry wine company based in a secret wine cave in northern California. Our mission is to make really good wines at really good prices. We don’t have a chateaux or give vineyard tours. The only tasting room we have is a seat at our table, as long as you’re around when we fire up the grill.
