Loves this merlot! Came in a blend box and was pleasantly surprised. Easy, smooth and delicious.

2017 Vintage with mountain scape bottle art. It was alright, slightly better than table wine, but nothing overly special. Would have again, but not buy special.

Balanced wine. Ruby red color. Cherry on the nose. Strawberry and currant on the palate. Enjoyable wine.

Horrible even after aerating, just a bad blend! Sad part is I am no expert and not terribly picky. I guess I know more about wine and what I like more than i thought
