Not the best Merlot in fact not at all like Merlot
Not great, not like a Merlot, harsh and a little bitter. Disappointed but improved with a little sugar (no I am not a 'wine snob').
Worth ten stars.
Excellent quality; can't comment on the bouquet, I've no sense of smell, however, my sense of taste is not impaired. This is the best of the Merlots I have tasted.
