Here is another non-vintage red from California by Rex-Goliath – their Merlot.

Vineyard:     Rex-Goliath
Varietal:       Merlot
Vintage:       NV
Appellation: California
Price:          $8.99

Notes:  Another nice medium-bodied non-vintage selection from HRM Rex-Goliath.  I found this wine packed full of cherry and raspberry flavor along with some hints of coffee near the finish.  It  has light tannins that give it some structure and will allow it to pair well with food.   At 13.5% alcohol, this is a dry wine that for many won’t taste like a very dry wine because of the fruit-forward flavors.

Important:  I am not a professional sommelier or wine connoisseur.  See “About” for the full disclaimer.
