2008 Patch Block Merlot: Inexpensive relaxation

jan. 14, 2011: we didn't expect this georges duboeuf french wine to be decent. at $6.99, it was definitely a second-bottle speciman, but even this merlot is better than some higher priced versions of the same. i think it's a softer red, thrusting with flavor, with textures strewn every which way. greg said it has a good nose, is slightly tannic, with some sweet and fruity qualities that end with bitterness. a "fantastic merlot for only $7, highly recommended." 13 percent alcohol. winetree.
