More fruit forward, bold, and full-bodied than a typical Merlot. I prefer bolder reds so I liked this one more than a typical merlot fan might.

Easy to drink, pair well with a nice steak. Little fruity for a merlot

Very decent smooth and balanced wine. A very very pleasant merlot. Would definitely get it again was glad I got to try one of the ones on my wishlist! ~23$ SAQ

Rich for a merlot but easy to drink, has a slight corky/oaky or something taste to start with but mellows down as you drink it ... kind of like the dry edge to it.

Simple and affordable everyday wine. Good taste and texture. Not amazing but for $12 or so it's a good deal.

Pretty high sugar content at 8g/L and it's noticeable. However this is a smooth merlot, perhaps not necessarily worth its lofty price tag, but would pair well with roasts, steaks, and stews.
