very pleasant. really surprised, bought this bottle, still trying to find the absolute best table wine for drinking without being overly indulged. good aroma, pleasing to the palate, and goes down smooth. that is my thoughts anyway. still trying this wine thing. cheers. any suggestions would be great.

I'm all about enjoying wine for $10 or less! Even happier, if it is $5 or less, which is what I paid for this wine on sale. Nice, easy-drinking. maybe rather non-descript. Slight fruity aroma, then with a soft tannic, oaky taste and quick finish. Enjoyed it with both spaghetti and pizza. Nothing earth shatterine here. If you are looking for something affordable and drinkable, this fits the bill.

I completely agree with the previous reviewer. We loved this wine for the price. The 2007 Turning Leaf Reserve Merlot in 3L box container was quite good. Flavorful and well-balanced, with just the right amount of acidity. Perhaps lacking the depth and complexity of wines at 2 or 3 times the price, this one was just overall yummy, and I couldn't stop pouring glass after glass, with very good aftertaste. Sometimes I don't want to think about the philosophical aspects of a wine, but rather just enjoy it without analysis and justification. That's this wine.

Delicate flavors of plum, black cherry and a hint of pepper, rounded out by a touch of oak. Medium bodied and smooth.

Expresses rich bing cherry characters on the nose and palate along with a hint of pepperiness. It is a medium bodied wine that is well-balanced by its oak imparted tannins. The wine is pleasurable w
