Not a bad wine for casual, every day dining. Always a crowd pleaser.

This was a surprise Merlot. It was on sale at the local Lowes food store. We were having a party where the wine knowledge was elementary, so we didn't want to spend a lot. Now much to our surprise, the wine was a great buy in the price range. Fruit forward, but on the light side. I rate this around the same or better than "2 buck chuck". If you find it on sale buy at least 6 since our local store sold out quickly!!!!

Light and refreshing with currant and blackberry flavors. Soft with layers of cherry and bright cedar. A delightful example of California Merlot.
