Little Boomey Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2004
The best cab/merlot I've ever had, maybe not. But I paid $6.99 for a 1.5L bottle. Not too darn bad! Yes, it has dark fruit/berry on the nose but on the palate, I didn't get too much fruit. Dry, tannic finish, leaving my toungue dry. Would have expected a little smoother since it was a 2004. However, you just can't argue the price and with a meal, is a plain good everyday wine!!
Smooth Merlot that has some very nice characteristics
This wine can be found in double bottles at World Market and cost only $7.99 (in Ohio). It is the best Cabernet/Merlot blend in its price range. It goes great with heavy pasta dishes, or a hearty meaty meal. Highly recommend it for a party or family dinner.
