Domaine Boyar 2012 Reserve Merlot

$10
Best Buy
Garnet black color. Delicate aromas of fruity caramel, berry tart, and gherkin with a silky, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium body and an appealing, medium-length cherry jam on toast, nuts, and earth finish with chewy tannins and light oak. A delicious, zesty, nicely structured red that will cover a lot of bases.
