Crane Lake is a value-driven brand produced by Franzia and Bronco Wine Company. The majority of these wines are produced in California, with some branching out into Australia (for Down Under Chardonnay and others). These are available in supermarkets and most retailers.
As with all the Crane Lake I have enjoyed a simple merlot that isn't very complex but easy to drink.
External Reviews for Crane Lake Merlot California
Good five-buck wine. Dry, full-bodied and juicy in youthful berry jam, and even a kiss of smoky oak.
