Matua Valley Merlot 2010

Matua Valley is a New Zealand producer that is part of the stable of "brands" (their words, not mine) owned by Treasury Wine Estates (formerly Fosters).  This wine was a little rough, but ok.  Soft sweet spices and a slight sharpness on the nose.  A soft finish and a bit spiky on the palate.  Pleasant enough for a cheapie.  77 points (6.2/10)

Abv: 13.5%
Price: NZ$14.90
