Morande Terrarum 2002 Merlot

Price: around $4

Color: Deep dark red

Nose: Blackberries, and oaky…wait..that’s not oak, its CORK!

Taste: Thin bodied and somewhat balanced. I say somewhat balanced because the cork odor really inhibits the ability to enjoy this wine.

Summary: This wine is past its prime. Clearly this wine would have been nice to drink two or three years back.  Its really on the verge of going bad.  This explains the mark down from $7.

I found this at World Market. They typically carry around ten different Chilean wines and are fairly priced.
