Cheap Merlot

Posted by Terrence , Jul 16.

Anyone knows a bold Merlot under $20 ? I bought one years ago but I forgot the brand

I don't think many associate the descriptor "bold" with Merlots, but I have been enjoying this one lately

 

Light red fruit, which, to me, sounds like Merlot, but with sufficient tannin to give it nice backbone.  This is the fifth or sixth bottle of this that I've been the last couple months at Costco for $15.

See if you can find Chateau Ste. Michelle "Indian Wells" merlot (Washington) and should be about $14.

Good call on the Chateau Ste. Michelle.  Just a solid winery--and I have a lot of regard for WA Merlots in general.

It's decent enough that I've even bought it in Victoria for $35 CDN!

NO, that's the going rate at BC Liquor Distibution.  That said, I can find plenty of great BC merlot for $25 CDN.

So, Terrence, did you have any luck?
