Restrained and balanced, with proper dry black fruit (not cranberry/pomegranate) with well integrated wood smoke and cocoa notes.

Wife's choice of wine for steak dinner night.

She liked it very much.
Cherry, blackberry, American oak, and a touch of cocoa. Light tannins and fairly easy drinking. Good value.

It doesn’t taste corked, but lacking velvety smoothness and body.

Bigger on the nose. Light up front. Smooth oak and dark fruit to finish.

Color is marginal and a very low body for a merlot. More alcohol than flavor almost no front end.

Tastes like "bad Total Wine recommendation". Nose starts with a hint of "let's get rid of our overstock" and, with air, introduces a bit of "only sell our direct winery wines with the high margins." On the palate, the weak juice tastes primarily of "hype" and "complete lack of product knowledge." Oh yeah... and a little bit of dark fruit mixed in there. :) (unbalanced, a bit thin, and too much alcohol on the nose.)
