Our Rating: 8 out of 10
French Rabbit Merlot 2005 is the second of this brand’s Tetra Paks we have tasted, and we liked it a bit better than the French Rabbit Pinot Noir. The Merlot has aromas of cherry and mocha, which also featured in the wine’s flavor. The finish is a bit tannic.
We like the compact size of the French Rabbit Tetra Paks, though neither of the reds we have taste has been particularly impressive. We’d like to see the fruit a bit more prominent and a bigger flavor overall. Still, this isn’t a bad Merlot.
