Attractive roasted, smoky aromas join ripe plum and blackberry flavors in this full-bodied, broadly textured wine. It's a great value and packs plenty of fruitiness into a rather big, moderately tannic frame. Jim Gordon

Noble Vines 2014 181 Merlot Online review: Attractive roasted, smoky aromas join ripe plum and blackberry flavors in this full-bodied, broadly textured wine. It's a great value and packs plenty of fruitiness into a rather big, moderately tannic frame. HH: Bouquet deeper than a merlot in my opinion. Smooth like a merlot though… Light and fruity, but still a nice textured red indeed. Bouquet gets deeper upon sipping… Good, tight, strong red without being overpowering.
