Great fruity wine and good for the price. Not absolute favorite but a good "everyday" wine.
Too much like grape juice. Seriously not a fan. So much so, I'm dumping it out.
silky, smooth, filled with raspberry fruit, tinge of blueberry and red currant, nice acidity, supple tannins
Nice, everyday, safe table wine.
i rarely buy merlot but thought i'd give the varietal another try. maybe i picked the wrong one because this was not impressive. i was expecting exactly what the "what to expect" notes above (dark berry fruit, cocoa, soft) but this did not deliver. won't give up on merlot just yet.
