The Dark Horse Merlot from Don Francisco Winery c
The Dark Horse Merlot from Don Francisco Winery combines bashful halibut undertones with a fruity Cap’n Crunch aftertaste. It brings together surreal musk flavors (Grandma's underwear drawer) and an outspoken citrus aroma. A tangy chocolate finish and luxurious sour cream overtones are combined in this cheeky little red. coalesces toasty wheat elements with a sullen parsnip perfume.
the worse wine i have ever tasted don't waste your money
Punches well above its weight.
It really punches above its weight at this price point. Smokey on the nose with creamy vanilla oak on the palate and a lingering long finish. At 14.5% ABV, it does have an oomph on first sip. Best decanted two hours ahead of serving. It matches well with most meat dishes and rich vegetarian alternatives. Avoid seafood or delicate white fish as its firm tannin will overpower them.
Deep dark and oaky. Smooth and so drinkable, doesn't touch the sides!
well my guest asked me for details of it as it was best for ages they tasted for ages!
A Top Merlot
Deep colour, with a wonderful soft mellow after flavour. I will be purchasing more of this. I don’t have to decide what it goes well with, it just goes very well 😜
Drain cleaner grade wine
A deeply unpleasant wine, bitter, rancid, disgusting, not worth £2 never mind £8.50. Bottle down the drain after the first sip.
Good body -- nice midweek drinking. Don't know if I'd buy it at full price though!
Nothing special, though nothing to complain about
Dark Horse used to produce more interesting, oak-aged wines, which is why we thought this worth buying a case of. This is a fairly standard £5 -£7-grade Merlot. Suitable mid-week wine but not for special occasions.
This wine is definitely a great drink, it's deep favours and it's smooth taste goes well with reds meats or even drunk on it's own.
