Saturday, February 16, 2013 - My perspective is much different than those few raters that gave comments here in CT and the pro rating it has gotten.
There is no way I would have picked this as a Merlot had it not been on the label. The wine was a surprising rose red. The nose was dusty very light fruit and some spice. The taste was very thin muddled together red fruits and as I drank it, the wine became thinner. The wine almost immediately took on a taste of out of balance acid and that character applied to the finish as well. There was a very light tannic tone to the finish. I bought one bottle to try before I bought more---I doubt I'll be spending any more money on this wine
