For the price, this is a great wine. This $4 bottle is better than many $7 to $15 dollar bottles of merlot that I've tried. This merlot is light, which I'm normally not impressed with, but you can smell and taste the rose petal notes balanced by a perfect amount of tannin, pepper, and alcohol. This merlot is a perfect balance of dry and sweet. Very, very nice. And at less than $5 per bottle you can't go wrong.

Wine in a box, and a great value for its succulent flavors of sweet black cherries, at the equivalent of $4.50 a bottle. This soft, friendly wine has a voluptuous texture and a spicy finish.

Tasty, with ripe, round and jammy plum, blackberry, vanilla and toast notes, offering depth and richness. Buy a case or two.

There's a depth of fruity flavor and soft richness of texture that make this a very fine value Merlot. You're struck by the way the plum, cherry and blackberry flavors flood the palate, and instead of turning gooey-chocolaty-ripe, there's a white pepper note that makes the wine savory and more companionable with food. Alcohol is a modest 13.5%.

Outside of the vineyard, wines like this are what built the company's production to reach 12 million cases per year. Plump and low in acid, with baked black cherry flavors accented by earth and dried herbs, it just may be the Merlot poured by the glass at your neighborhood hangout.

Pleasant for its simple cherry and strawberry flavors and soft texture. Drink now.

Here you'll find forthcoming berry fruit much in the direction of Beaujolais, which makes the wine a fine candidate for summer lunches, perhaps with a slight chill.
