I'm new to Merlot's. But I think this was a good intro considering the price, popularity, and well-roundedness. It's a little sweet and a little heavy for my tastes, but that doesn't mean anything to those who like it. The tannins balance out the sweetness in the sense that they both seem slightly strong, with sweetness winning out. (I'm a regular Cab. Sauv. drinker, so I like em deep in flavor and dry as a bone - like Oberon) Sweet fruity aroma, taste of Oaky dark fruit (mostly raspberries). When I first opened this bottle, and it was still a little stiff, the hint of Mint was easily found (and even surprised me to know that I actually noticed it), but now that it's been relaxed for a few days, I don't notice it anymore.

Boldly fruit-driven, with concentrated black stone fruit flavor. Its dark fruit and balanced tannins score big on your palate. Our Merlot has lush, velvety tannins and rich fruit, with aromas and flavors of black currant, black cherry, and blackberry with ripe plum, sweet herbs and a hint of spice. Don t be shy, Gnarly Merlot is bold enough to pair with hearty dishes, try with piping hot pizza, pork loin, porterhouse steak and roasted vegetables.
