Has a medium depth pushing dark. It smells fruity but not blowzy with a since of cherry and acidity. Light tannins and low acid in the mouth and a lighter body than usual Merlot, but still medium. But, After it sits for a while the acidity almost becomes unbearable. Has a taste of plum and dark cherry. The finish starts off steady but moves to a watery vinegar.

Two glasses

<p>Crane Lake Merlot is a light refreshing red with a nose of currants and blackberries. This wine is medium bodied with soft layers of cherry and bright cedar on the palate. Medium tannins and a smooth drinkable finish make this an excellent California Merlot for the price.</p>
