Truth up front, bought this wine cause the label looked cool and the local wine reviewer had given it over 90 points.
Great label, great wine. Let it breath for a while, 20 mins or so and it makes a good difference. For an ’08 merlot bottled from the Russian River Valley this was a great wine all the way around.
The label says “wine waves and soul” and this wine has each of those. A great balance, smooth taste and great finish. Paired it with a creamy pasta dish and it was perfect. At well under $20 definitely worth a try.
The XPRT wine review rating 90 out of 100.
