Black River Merlot 2004, Romania
A real surprise package for me, I totally expected to hate this and throw the test of the bottle away, but as it was, it was terrible. Don't get me wrong, this is no Petrus and won't win any awards - this is just like thin, alcoholic Strawberry jam with a few hints of redcurrant jelly - personally I'd drink it lightly chilled at a BBQ as it just lacked any class. Not horrid, but not a wine I'll go and buy.
