Aaron:  There’s a nice bouquet of hazelnut, vanilla and oak trees on this merlot.  The flavor is full for the varietal and some nice tannins add body to the tons of dark berries.  This is enjoyable and not too light, definitely one to keep handy for “emergencies”.  89

Teri: This is quite a common bottle found at most wine retailers and many restaurant wine lists. A peppery strawberry nose makes way to a medium body with more strawberry flavors, pepper, and dry oak. The flavor is long and grassy on the finish but nothing distinctly stands out. 87 points
