Here I thought we were alone in this!
I bought a bottle of the '01 Grand Estates Merlot just a few days ago and my wife and I both found it to be over-oaky and otherwise underwhelming. I think when you walk away from a Merlot remembering the wood more than anything else, somewhere is a winemaker who needs to get his/her head straightened out.
