Not bad for a $3 bottle of wine. Used it to make a Merlot sauce for Chateaubriand and enjoyed some with dinner.

Store: Whole Foods
Price: $2.50

Appearance:Clear medium plus ruby.

Nose: Clean, pronounced dark berry, green peppercorn, green bell pepper.

Palate: Dry, medium acidity and tannin, medium-minus body. Flavors of Dark berries, and baking spices.

Short finish.

Conclusion: For $2.50, this is a very good Merlot.

Conclusion: Commentary: If you can only afford to spend $2.50 on a bottle of wine, you can do a whole lot worse. Has my support for a wine in the under $5 category. Props for easy removed synthetic cork, and light weight glass. ABV is a mere 12.5%, which I believe is why this wine is successful.

Best $3 bottle of wine I’ve had. Whole Foods figured this one out. Smooth, not too dry, not too acidic. I’m not a connoisseur but I know what I like. This is really good.

We love all the Three Wishes wines. Good price for easy drinkers. This one was good on its own but not so great with quiche.

For wine under $5 I'd be surprised if you could find better. Strong notes of vanilla.
