Meh. Not a bad price. After a bit of time, I get the velvet... However, the mid palate is flat. You devil!

Decent merlot. No wow factor and kind of one note. But okay for under or around $10.

Quite typical and a bit flat Merlot from States. Very light touch of cherry and only after a while you feel the velvet taste.

Über fresh. Red fruits, roots, spieces. Mouthfeel very light, delicate tannins, simple but drinkable.

В носе рулет с корицей, помидор и ржавчина. Вкус очень жаркий, алкогольный. Через этот жар ничего не пробивается. На второй день чуть более питко. Появляется черная смородина.

A little on the sweet side for a merlot, but I enjoyed it.

Nicely quaffable wine. Lots of dark fruits but with a surprising bit of complexity.
