Tin Roof Merlot '09
For an excellent Merlot that's a steal, Tin Roof Merlot '09 is a great choice. This wine is blended from grapes grown in California's coastal wine regions, which offer cool climates that help bring out the soft fruit flavors of Merlot grapes. The aroma is on the bold side, with dried berry and a hint of clean mint. The flavor has lots of big berry flavors that are perfectly complemented by earthy undertones. The tannins are incredibly soft through still pronounced, and the finish long and satiny. Aged in oak, this wine has been given ample time for the flavors to develop in complexity and it's ready to drink right away.
