WINE OF THE WEEK

October 13, 2004|By Michael Dresser

2002 Red Diamond Merlot, Washington ($12). There are no rough edges to this smooth-as-silk, medium-bodied red wine from the same company as Washington state's Chateau Ste. Michelle. What you get are lush black-cherry and chocolate flavors and a satisfying finish. You can find a more complex merlot, but for sheer drinkability and easy charm this is hard to beat. It would be a fine match with grilled tuna or roast chicken.
