Not built to last, but man is this a really good bottle of wine. Dark cherry cordial and hint menthol. Really enjoyable!

2006. One of our favorite weeknight wines from the late 90's and early 00's. Bought this one then ignored in the cellar...nice cherry flavors, a little spicy oak, the tannins are still there but smooth. Paired great with grilled strip, roasted cremini, and stilton.

A solid "everyday" style of wine. Lots of cherry/vanilla going on. Love me a good Merlot!
