Image
Are you seeking a wine that is good for sports night sipping that can cater to a variety of tastes? You may want to pull together a few dollars and buy HRM Rex Goliath 47 Pound Rooster Merlot. Some of the words that might describe Rex Goliath’s Merlot dark, ripe, smooth, plumb, cedar, and cherry. Very little back of the tongue tannin aftertaste but still maintains mouth-filling flavor. It is a medium-bodied wine from California.  One of the best wine values I have come across for under $5.00.

Some are generic and offered in every cheap liquor store while others may be more specialized and home grown.   However, finding an affordable Merlot that does not make your mouth pucker is worth it-especially if it is under $12 a bottle. In my life I have tried both expensive and cheap wine and have been pleasantly surprised by both.

It may take you a while to feel light headed but it still offers a reasonable taste for an over-the-counter price. The Berenda Road wine was processed us
