A review of River's End Merlot 2014 for Weekend Wine Reviews #308.
River's End Merlot, 2014, California, Wine Insiders, $14.99. They say: Ripe berry fruit flavors with a nice touch of oak. Merlot is a dark blue grape with tends to produce medium bodied wines, with flavors of berry, plum and currants. From two of the oldest vineyards along California's North Coast, where the Russian River meets the Pacific Ocean. The region is perfect for growing merlot grapes. Serve with grilled duck, turkey, chicken, braised lamb, pork or beef – and a nice partner for dishes featuring a rich tomato sauce. We say: Medium body with plums. Nice long finish. Well balanced. Buy again: yes!
