Salmon Creek Merlot 2004 wine review by (PB)
Okay, first we need to get a grip and remember that this is a wine that costs less than $5! Understanding that, let's proceed. This wine is a light red like the hue of a Pinot Noir. The bouquet is amazingly fruity with a touch of bubble gum and powder ending with a slight peppery note in the nose.
In the mouth this wine is on the sweeter side but pleasant enough to drink but again--let's take note of the price of this wine. It is NOT a good representation of the varietal grape but it is a decent enough "wine beverage." Yes it tastes manufactured; yes it is sweet; yes it is annoying if you're a wine snob but the fact is, this would appeal to the inexperienced, non-discriminating wine drinker who wants something fruity and simple. I give a good rating because it is more drinkable than many of the wines I pay twice as much for so given that--raise a glass!
