According to "Wine Business Journal" Merlot is one of the most popular red wine varietals in many markets, and rightly so. This medium bodied wine has a lovely ripe colour with viscous tannins. The flavours of ripe plums and a hint of spice, such as black pepper and smoke, are imbued with hints of tea leaf. A good value wine.

Enjoyable sipper. Beautiful Royal purple colour. Medium bodied with nice tannins. A noticeable plummy flavour and hints of spice. Elegant finish. I'd recommend this as a good buy! Cheers.
