This weeks Garagiste Show features a discussion of Merlot with Adam Lazarre of Lazarre Wines along with wine writer Mira Honeycutt. Merlot has unfortunately suffered in the marketplace. However this show is about promoting and re establishing the variety as one of the Bordeaux’s greats. One that is now making a resurgence because great examples have and will always exist. Previous overproduction of mediocre examples along with a films misinterpretation led to almost and abandonment of the variety by consumers. That history is now being corrected by the likes of winemakers like Adam making truly exceptional wines from the variety.
