CedarCreek Estate Winery Merlot 2009
Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: September 11, July 26, September 12 and March 7.
A savoury red with nicely balanced acidity for food and luscious dark plum aromas. Satin smooth and full-bodied. A pleasantly bitter finish. This is a terrific price for a wine of such quality. Merlot food pairings: grilled pork tenderloin.

Opinions about wine differ greatly as the experience is subjective. You may find it helpful to compare this critical evaluation of the wine with mine as well as your own:
|We left this Merlot in French oak barrels for 501 days so the tannins would get silky smooth. We smell both red and black currants and we taste more currants and chocolate.|
