You know, this reminds me what Merlot can be all about. No polished, soft, saggy fruit drink here - this has texture and tannin and licorice and herbs. Classic (in the historic sense) Cali Merlot.

Excellent for an everyday! More like a cab than a merlot. Got at Costco.

A standard merlot. It's chilled a bit so the silky texture really came out. Also standard dark cherry, dark plum, and subtle herb. Not sure what herb, but def not rosemary or those poignant French herb

Good Merlot. Nice dark fruit up front and a fair amount of liquorice. More than most. Good with blue cheese and Blue Jays!!
