Tin Roof Merlot 2005
Merlot from California
Wine Style Guide
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
A classic plush texture and delicious black cherry and plum flavors make our sumptuous Merlot both delicious on its own and a versatile food wine. Enjoy it with beef, lamb, roast duck with cherry sauce, red-sauce pastas, black olive and mushroom pizzas, and soft-ripening cheeses.
"I found myself returning to this Merlot again and again, because it’s such a good, gentle, easy sipper. It’s a pleasure to drink one that’s so nicely dry and balanced. Does a great job balancing ripe berry and stone fruits with earthy herbs and spices. Sommeliers and restaurateurs, scoop this one up while you can."
A perfectly balanced wine. Medium body and a fruity taste, but is not overwhelming. Fun to have on its own, but would go great with pork chops or a nice dark chocolate. Funny they mention it is a screw cap. It is not! I highly recommend it.
TASTES SMOOTH,NOT BITTER WITH ALCOHOL, JUST EASY GOING DOWN,VERY GOOD WITH BAKED CHICKEN.
I did not enjoy this wine...
This is the best wine I've tasted under $10!!! I highly recommend trying it.
This wine was recommended by a friend who said it was not only cheap but very easy drinking.
Great wine for the price, full bodied and just delicious!
Great body with firm legs. Plush like driving a Cadil.
this was a great wine I would have expected to pay 40 for or more
We bought a bottle as part of a selction of under $20 wines with ratings of 90+. It is very full bodied and balanced for a Merlot. At under $10 bucks it is a steal. We bought a case for everyday drinking.
Great Merlot for the price. Smooth with good slight fruit flavor.
Not a fruit bomb; can go before, during and after dinner.
Highly recommended for the price.
This was a very easy to drink wine. Great by itself, great with food. I drank it over a course of three days, keeping the opened bottle in the fridge. It held up well even on the third day.
I bought this based on previous reveiws. While it wasn't bad, I found it to lack in flavor and complexity. Will not buy again.
good everyday wine but a score from WE of 90 is a bit over rated. Ennjoyable over a nice dinner but nothing to brag about.
I was pleased with this one - much higher quality than I am used to. Sometimes Merlots can be a little too robust, but this one went down nice and smooth.
Really good for under $10
Would definitely buy again. Great value and very quaffable CA merlot. Fruit forward with a balanced, even finish.
I've purchased this wine several times now and it's always a hit. It's great with meals or just for sipping. LOVE IT!
Smooth drinking. Given the price, this is a no-brainer.
Excellent and very smooth. I recommend this one!
Inexpensive, we got more than what we paid for
This is a nice wine for the price. It can start a little chewy, but it blows off. Be patient.
This wine was a disappointment. It was not smooth & mellow. It tasted bitter. Where was the fruity taste? This wine was hard to swallow.

Learn About Merlot
No second fiddle
Merlot is coming back into its own. High popularity led to mass production, which then led to a backlash towards the variety (remember Miles in Sideways?). But passionate Merlot producers, and of course the right bank of Bordeaux, continued to produce quality versions of this grape. Merlot remains the principle grape of top chateaux in St...
