    October 12, 2011 - Coming from someone who does not care much for Merlot, this is a great wine for the price point. Opens up immediately, good fruit with a little heat. Would recommend.

    March 20, 2011 - For the money (11$), a really nice find and worthy of consistent drinking. Earthy, hints of chocolate, dark fruits and decent backbone. Babcock used to be pricey but it appears he is creating great value wines now. Recommend.
