Stir crazy at home on a wintry weekend night. I enjoy the cherry, toasty oak flavor of this merlot.

Although the finish was abrupt, the overall flavor made up for it!

Very nice Merlot representation. Very smooth, not overpowering. Balanced in about every category. Worth a glass for sure.

This wine was recommended by the chef to go with center cut bison filets. It was a bit to fruity and fell short of complimenting the meal.

Fruity and dry. Debra really likes it (surprising she doesn't like red usually)

I normally don't care for Merlot, but this wine is full bodied and only slightly tannic.
