Ravenswood is one of America's best known red wine producers and their famous "No wimpy wines" motto certainly holds true with this release. The 2018 Vintners Blend Merlot is a big solid offering with the classic black plum and cherry flavours, subtle spicy tones and smooth tannins. If you like your merlot with plenty of body, you'll find amazing value here.
The distributor writes "Big, rich, powerful flavors overwhelm your senses, with the confident balance of a seasoned tightrope walker. Full of smooth tannins, the 2018 vintage shines with bright fruit flavors of black plum and cherry along with olive and spice."
