Very disappointing Merlot. Very nondescript. Some classic red fruit, plum on the nose, but lightweight! Light bodied (which was surprising), no structure & not terribly complex; Also, not well balanced..I've had Pinots with more body than this Merlot. Pleasant, but a bit grapey on the palate. Flimsy tannins. Finish left alot to be desired. Overall, extremely disappointed...will not buy again. This is relatively expensive and definitely NOT a good value for the money!
