A touch dull on the nose with aromas of dried dates, apricots and a little vanilla and spice. This is polished and smooth, with some nice tannins and decent acidity, there's even some nice black currant, plum, and chocolate pudding flavors here, but they are very subtle. The fruit pops a bit with some strawberry notes on the back end, along with subtle herb notes, but this sort of evaporates on the finish. Nothing wrong here, this will offend no one but at the same time there is little to set it apart other than the price. 80pts

Quite dark in the glass. Big, oaky, volatile nose. Quite pleasant on the tip of the tongue--some berry, cassis fruit, but not overwhelming. As the wine moves over the palate the tannins become apparent creating the obvious puckery sensation, but also some hint of cinnamon or mint. Noticeable oak on the back of the throat..

I am more of a white wine fan so I do not enjoy this wine by itself. However, it makes a great tasting sangria!!

Velvety flavors of blackberries, currants and spices accented by soft oak note swell to a smooth finish. Grill a steak or brew some chili and enjoy this tasty wine.

There's some nice, plush blackberry and cherry fruit in this dry wine. It will match well with foods that spar with its crisp acids and edge of tannins.

Ripeness was no problem in this fruit-forward wine. It's exuberant in cherries, blackberries, plums and cranberries, with a little dusting of oak, and the finish is totally dry. Gives some real upscale Cab experience, at a decent price.

Velvety flavors of blackberries, currants and warm spices. Rich, ripe character; soft tannins in a very approachable wine.

Made from Mondavirsquo;s best grapes from his coastal vineyards, this Merlot has big, upfront fruit, making it versatile with mass appeal. The wine exhibits layers of plum, berry and spice, with a soft touch of French oak.

Merlot remains Americarsquo;s top-selling red wine; wines like this seem to keep the category going. Pretty good for the price, nice and dry with modest cherry-berry flavors, and a hit of tannin and acidity.

Vibrant flavors in an approachable style that showcases luscious layers of berry, raspberry and spice with light oak nuances.
