- Very nice
- A bit tanniny. But enjoyable. Good for the price.
- Smoking Loon 2008 Merlot - smooth cherry, cedar notes, exceptional matched with steak, best Merlot I've had under $15
- Paired with grilled pork ribs during a family vacation in Colorado.
- Inexpensive and satisfying! Nice cherries and smoke, round tannins, easy ABV. Purchased out of curiosity for 5.99 @ Vons
