This is what I envision merlot should be. It has nice floral notes and on the palate has some nice fruit and some gentle tannins that enhance this wine. Very nice finish. I am so sick of wimpy merlots that are nothing more than Kool- Aid on steroids. This is the real deal. I will continue to buy this merlot.

This wine stands up well to strongly-flavored foods. I enjoyed it with a spicy peanut-sauced Thai dish. Much better than other merlots I've tried at the same price point.

After hearing quite a few good words on this wine, I must confess to being a bit disappointed. It's certainly a strong, brambley merlot, delivering a defining dose of marionberry, raspberry and smokey cedar. For a label whose concept is drink-now wines, however, the tannins are quite harsh and aggressive to the tongue. In short, it neither has the smooth elegance of an easy sipper, nor the complexity and structure to warrant meditation or food pairing. Will not purchase again.

Classic Merlot aromas of dark cherries, cedar, pipe tobacco. Anise, stone and cherry blossoms. Yeah, believe it! Naughty and nice, a true Velvet Devil. -Charles Smith Alcohol:13.5% Total Acid: .59 pH: 3.66 ** SOLD OUT **

Fruchtiges Bukett nach einem Korb voller reifen Waldbeeren mit einer feinen Schokoladennote. Weicher, eleganter Auftakt, sehr fruchtig und harmonisch mit teuflisch samtigen Tanninen im Abgang.
