Charles Smith Velvet Devil Merlot

2015 Charles Smith Velvet Devil Merlot...$10.99
A savoury, robust, smooth, easy-drinking red wine from Washington State made from Merlot grapes. Aromas of fleshy ripe plums and some toasty oak. Pair with grilled chicken.
Rated 90/100 Natalie Maclean
The aromas in this wine are bright, with notes of herb, tire rubber and red currant, with the oak influence dialed back. The fruit flavors are lighter styled, direct and pure, going down easy with blue-fruit flavors on the finish. It's a pleasant easy drinker.
Rated 88/100 The Wine Enthusiast
