Santa Rita 120 Merlot 2007

Price: $6

Color: Deep Red – Maroon

Nose: I let this sit and open up for a good half hour in the glass before the peppery plum scents hit me.

Taste: A medium body with nuttiness and hints of tobacco.  The finish leaned a bit to the bitter side throwing off what would have been a nicely balanced merlot.

Summary: At $6.00, this is a good Merlot.  This wine may have benefited from longer aeration, but it’s worth a try if you are looking for a budget Merlot.
