A bright fresh merlot with pure aromas and flavours of black cherry and pomegranate fruit with some spice and leather...

The nose is a bit disappointing, with muted notes of light fruit and veges. Yet, the flavours are more impressive. Lively red fruits, no overripeness, with hints of spice and vanilla. Nice balance of fruit and tannin. No Petrus, of course (not that I can afford to taste a Petrus!) but a very good red for not much money. On sale until late May/15 at $10.95, I should say this is worthy of multiple bottle purchase. Nice rec by ST. Tasted April 2015.
