Wine Review: Who says Merlot is dead? This wine is alive and kicking!! This rich purple wine has an intense berry bouquet. On the palate, this full bodied wine is solid, smooth, and well balanced. This wine has a rich flavor profile. This is a Cab drinkers Merlot. The finish is a bit dry, has some tannins and is prolonged. This wine calls out for a nice steak at you favorite steak house. This wine is an excellent value. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Rich and round, with ripe plum, cooked cherries and chocolate flavors. Medium-bodied with a lingering finish.

Buy it: Use 1000 Corks to find stores that sell Merlot.
