Pretty good Merlot for the price. Definitely one to have around for an everyday use. Would definitely buy it again!
This is a wine that I always trust, the winemakers notes say it all. this works well as a tablewine or with anything from tomato sauce or cabbage to lamb
Full bodied and rich. Not overpowered by a good steak or prime rib. Has a silkyness to it's texture almost like a syrah.
I am new to wine and have not had very many different ones and none very expensive .. however this one is by far my favorite it's delicious !
This is my choice of Merlots, It's rich and full-bodied. It goes well with prime rib, chateaubriand, or hamburgers.
