Starret Merlot 2014

Starret MerlotLot 18/The Tasting Room, $16/bottle


Aaron:  This was a good middle-of-the-road bottle for me but nothing to go bonkers for.  The smoked burgundy and blackberry smell also featured a hint of jasmine.  I enjoyed the medium-full body with a little bitter strawberry, rose petals, and cherry rounding out the palate.  89 points.

Teri: This merlot has flavors of mellow juniper berry with a leafy finish. Mild bitter oak melts away to smooth tannins on the finish and a velvety mouth feel. Easy to drink and not too complex. Overall, very approachable. 88 points
