It's incredibly mediocre. There's not a whole lot of flavor to notice about it. Its mostly tart and bitter like cranberries, with a hint of sweetness. I wouldn't buy it again, but I'd drink it if someone bought it for me.

Fuller body than expected with good structure. Fruity black cherry on the front blended well with Smokey vanilla on the finish. Rarely do i have merlots. Paired with Italian grilled chicken, ditalini pasta with filetto di pomodoro gravy and fresh baby spinach leaves.

Tastes a lot like Cusumano Merlot. A bit sweet, rich berry finish. Excellent for such a low cost. Thank you, Trader Joe’s.
