The Sweet Smell of Revenge

In this case, the revenge smells of cherry and vanilla with the flavors of plum and cocoa and a long finish of spicy gingerbread.

Winemaker, Marie-Eve of Forgeron Cellars announces that her 2002 Merlot is now for sale on the shelves of the famous cafe', Los Olivos Cafe & Wine Merchant in Los Olivos, CA where character Miles Raymond of the movie "Sideways" exclaims, "... if anyone orders Merlot, I'm leaving. I am NOT drinking any f***ing Merlot!"

Needless to say, a couple of years ago the movie "Sideways" hurt the sales of some excellent Merlot, while the wine-newbie masses were drinking some bad Pinot Noir. Meaning that not all Pinot Noirs (and Merlots) are created equal. It is obvious, our character Miles never tried any Merlot from Washington state.
