This 70% Merlot/30% Cab Franc was direct, fruity, and very soft. At $9.99, it was a very good value weekday dinner wine.
Dark ruby-garnet. Friendly nose of plummy, ripe, black cherry fruit, along with a hint of some fragrant dry gravelly/nutmeggy scents. Very soft in the mouth, with sultry, direct black cherry skin fruitiness, no tannin whatsoever, and a nice, pure, if not particularly lengthy, finish. Medium-full body. Drink over the next two years. B. Was $9.99 from Wine Exchange (winex.com). Imported by Jeffrey M. Davies Selections, Illinois.
