While visiting my brother and his family he stated that people keep bringing Merlot to his house and he can't stand them. I found this wine after a quick trip to the LCBO.

After he tried it, his opinion changed.

All merlots are not alike. A good right bank Bordeaux merlot can convert many who do not like the grape.

This one is well balanced, Plums, black cherry, oak, leather with a lasting finish. Mild tannins.
