It keeps getting worse every time I try it. So either it’s actually getting worse or my taste buds are just becoming snobbier.

Cherry-berry with black fruit aromas and notes of plum and oak spices. Classic and ordinary, making it a good go-to merlot.

2018, very good with roast beef! Smooth, good taste, good sipping. Would like to try with cheese and see if it holds up
Would need a sharp cheddar. Repeat depending on price
