Jon says... Don't Buy

Boring wine. The only difference between this bottle and a $7 merlot is a five dollar bill. It has big fruit flavors and doesn’t have any flaws, but so do all the other ultra-cheap merlots. The merlot market has taken a hit since the movie Sideways (Miles: “I do not drink merlot!”) This wine is exactly why.

Ted says... Well Priced

Easy drinker, smooth on the palate and a clean and quick finish. Simple berries are warm and inviting, and it might make that someone special extra cozy by the fireplace this winter.
