Canyon Oaks Merlot 2010

Total Wine & More, $4.99

Aaron:  Boysenberry-raspberry smells predicated the berry flavor which was a bit tart.  There was some cocoa on the front end followed by strawberries and mild oakiness.  The slight burn leaves quickly but hints of flavor remain, making this merlot great for the price.  90 points

Teri: Good tannins and a full body in this reasonably priced Merlot. Stronger on both flavor and finish, I tasted loads of cherry with some rhubarb and oak. I did get a little  woodsy/leafy taste on the finish that wasn’t to my liking but a good bottle for the cheaper price. 88 points
