Staff Wine Review – GoodCheapBooze.com

Good Booze. Smooth with berries.

Meritage wines sometimes show off the best of the French Bordeaux grapes. This one is not a huge wine, but it does show good berries and is pretty smooth after some time open or aerated. Decent price and a worthy pour. Enjoy within an hour or so of opening because the fruit isn’t going to linger on and on.
