90 • Milton Park 2006 Merlot, South Australia $12.99. Best Buy.
Deep garnet color. Aromas of eucalyptus leaf, black raspberry compote, and smoked pork follow through on a soft, silky entry to a fruity-yet-dry medium-to-full body with great depth and balance. Finishes with a long, sandalwood and sour cherry accented fade. A delicious sipper and perfect gyros wine. (tasted on Jan-20-2009)
