Lunar Harvest 2015 Merlot, Columbia Valley, $9

By on November 4, 2018

Best Buy! Seattle-based Precept Wine collaborates with Walmart on the young Lunar Harvest brand, they’ve created a value-minded expression of Washington Merlot that’s also a quaffer. Its theme of Bing cherry and milk chocolate includes hints of root beer candy and clove NECCO Wafer. Fine-grained tannins some with a drop of sweetness that’s pushed along by espresso grounds in the rather complex finish. Suggested pairings are roasted pork loin, red sauce pasta dishes and hard cheeses. The Lunar Harvest wines are available at select Walmart locations.
