...am seeing an old flame on Sunday, and want to make a present of a bottle of wine. I know he drinks merlot, so want to gift him a bottle. But I want it to be good bottle.

So, any recommendations for I guess a brand or vineyard (I know nothing of wine, but want it to taste good for him).

Bogle is consistently a great producer of Merlot at a value price (around $10). Look for a 2009 preferably.

Well you have probably already purchased the wine but if you haven't I would suggest you go to a decent wine and/or liquor store and ask the sales person. There are many that I would call reasonable. I am assuming by reasonable you are talking in the neighborhood of $7.00 to $11.00, right? I would recommend a couple to you, but we generally do not drink Merlot anymore. We drink Pior or Malbec. I think it is so interesting how our tastes in wines change over the years or is it simply trends change. When it comes to hard liquor, most people do not change their brands easily, but the "in" cocktail will change, but when it comes to wine: My or My. I remember when we all drank Chablis. I say all, I am referring to those of us that are past 50 or so. The younger generation probably never drank it.

I think a bottle of Turner Road Reserve Merlot would be effective. It's an American product and it's reasonably priced.
