drink this : owl house merlot

As a thank you for doing her hair, a girlfriend dropped off a bottle of Owl House Merlot. I was a bit scared and skeptical because her red wine choices are almost always questionable. Her tastes run to sweeter whites, and she never drinks red wine.

Anyway, I recently opened the bottle and let it breathe for a while before taking a taste. Then I let it breathe some more before passing judgement.

Owl House Merlot is a bit of a charmer. It's an uncomplicated wine with capsicum and apple overtones and an adorable little price tag ($8 - $11). I know it's lazy of me, but I posted it here so that I could remember what to purchase in the future.
