Nathanson Creek Merlot (N.V.) wine review by (PB)
I grabbed this because it was CHEAP and I was unfamiliar with the producer. This is a non-vintage California sourced Merlot that is cranberry colored with a light bouquet of green peppers and some light fruit.
Palate--thin, watery, some light fruit and about the best I can say, is that it is not-offensive.
I paid $6.79 for a 1.5 liter bottle--That's basically $3.40 a bottle and honestly for the price, this is the kind of wine that you might serve at a party with your friends who have no clue about what they're drinking anyway. As I said, it is not offensive, and goes down pretty easily.
So raise a glass: just don't think of it is a Merlot--but rather as a "wine beverage." :)
