Castle Rock Central Coast Merlot 2013
Wine EnthusiastPlump blueberry and blackberry fruit meet with crushed slate and root-beer notes on the nose of this widely available bottling. It's a bit thin in body and a tad sweet-leaning, but shows caramelized black fruit and rocky earth on the palate.
Wine SpectatorRather generic, with simple cherry and herb flavors. Drink now through 2019. 8,076 cases made.
