Review and Rating: ** Mandolin Merlot, 2005, CA


This was part of a "Wine Insiders" sample package of very low-priced wines. This mixed California appellation merlot showed a fairly transparent, medium-red in the glass. The nose was light - round, fruity with plum tones.

On the palate, it yielded a clean simple flavor of barely-ripe cherries and plum. No depth, with a pretty quick finish. Not a wine to seek out again. Two stars out of five.
