Light warm oak accentuates a spicy aroma with a soft, supple, and fruity palate of plums and red berries. Rich, round flavor provides an elegant lingering finish.

This was a gift, I have no idea if it’s any good.
Order filled earlier than promised. The merlot is fantastic.
I love kit wines. That being said, I have experienced a quality ceiling for reds at any price point that can’t approach the wine I can make from fresh juice and skins. Until Stags Leap Merlot. It simply breaks through the ceiling. It sets a new standard for full bodied kit reds. Invest in this kit. You will be thrilled with the outcome. And with patience, you will be overwhelmed.
Looks good so far. One bag of oak busted and all over inside but otherwise as expected. Check back in a year for quality report.
