Why We Love It

Live Luxx with a Merlot Made for Life’s Milestone Moments

Our Luxx Merlot is a classic expression of the quality and richness one can expect out of Paso Robles these days, lip-smacking and plummy with notes of black tea and good structure. A Merlot that is worthy of the LUXX label. Are you celebrating a milestone like an engagement or a promotion? Luxx is the perfect match!

Perfect

A lovely glass of Merlot, made with my two favorite foods, a hint of chocolate and cherries.
I normally can’t drink American made wine, but I have been able to drink all of Traveling Vineyard wines. The price of Luxx would be my only complaint.

Very Sad

I bought this wine back in October 2019 and kept it stored away with 5 other wines I'd purchased in my wine cabinet. It was 6 months before my husband and I decided to drink it. He placed it in the fridge to chill overnight so we could enjoy it nice and cold by lunchtime the following day, but when I opening it it smelled and tasted like vinegar. My Husband poured it out in the sink and there was a considerable amount of dreg that came out with the wine. This dreg was hard like wood shavings and smelled like metal.

Very disappointed as I tried this wine before buying and it was delicious. One bad bottle wouldn't normally be enough to put me off, but this was the 2nd bottle of wine in my order of 6 that was bad.
