Review: **+ $ Barefoot Merlot, California, non-vintage = GOOD VALUE

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Barefoot Merlot.

Original tasting and review : This is Barefoot Merlot, California, non-vintage, finished at 13% alcohol, and selling at a "practically free" price.  Consider this part of my "take o
ne for the team" category of reviews.

In the glass: Deep burgundy with ruby hints.

On the nose: Poured at cool  temperature and swirled vigorously, shows full deep plum fruit and sweet raspberry.  From the aroma, seems like this will be sweet and full of fruit.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact full and round in character, with light black raspberry elements blending with the deeper fruit.  Light, clean, fast finish.

In summary: Overall, rates two stars with a big plus for pleasantness on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.  A good value at its  price.
