Fantastic Merlot! The biggest hit of our wine tasting. Beat wine that was almost 5 times the price.

Average merlot, IMO, actually one of the few I find is better a little chilled. It is a good purchase if you don’t know what your crowd likes in a wine, but if you or your group has specific tastes, there are better options.

Really tart. Not sure if I like it or not. Haven't ever had a Merlot like this.

Paired with some awesome venison tenderloins. Great fruit notes with some lovely pepper and a little spice. This is an awesome summer dinner wine. Or any other time really.
