2008 Veneto Merlot

Continuing my new series on cheap booze, this 2008 Veneto Merlot, a £3.99 Italian from Tesco was a marked improvement.

Smelt like your bog standard merlot. A little sharp and tannic for my tastes, but I could definitely discern something resembling actual fruit in this one. Possibly blackcurrant? Certainly no problem finishing the bottle this time. I wouldn’t buy it again but it got the thumbs up from the lady, who enjoys red wine more than I do.
