Weekly Wine – Gray Fox

23 Apr

SONY DSCGray Fox Merlot
2012
USA
750ml
12.5% ABV
$8.25 (LCBO)

It is quite astounding that I keep on finding wines for under 10 bucks. I thought I would have run out of wines and would have to go up to 11, or just review the same old wines but with a different year.
Here’s another American wine. A good Californian wine.
How good?
A friend who is skeptical of low cost wines gave this wine an uncomplementary look before trying it and then said, “Hey, it’s not bad.” The wine even got a bit better after breathing a bit according to them.
The wine is harsh around its edges. The sulphites are definitely a presence in this wine but they do not get in the way of the wines light and subtle flavour.
