This is an inexpensive 100% Merlot. In good vintages, these are great places to look for values and nice wines that are accessible. And this one, hits all the marks. Deep ruby in color, mostly opaque and bright. The nose has raspberries, plums and slight spice. Medium bodied. On the palate, the raspberries continue along with some black cherries. Moderate finish. This is a tasty, fruit forward style of Merlot. It improves with a bit of air. Drinks fine on its own but will work better with some food. Roasted veggies or fowl would be a nice match. Drink over the next three to five years.
