FishEye Merlot 2003

Fish Eye Merlot 2003
FishEye Merlot caught my eye at the supermarket yesterday when trying to find a good cheap wine to pair with my pasta and chicken dinner.

Nice and fruity, I think the strongest aroma was plum. This wine was a good match to my dinner, and a good value for $5.89. I’d like to try their Cab one of these days.

Also, be sure to check out the Fisheye Winery website. Lots of fun!

    If you’re looking for a good cheap wine that will really surprise your palate and your wine sob frineds – try the Target Wine in a Cube Merlot. A 3 litre box cost about $14.00 and it will knock your socks off!

    I received a bottle of Fisheye Merlot as part of a Christmas package. As a former Riponite, I look forward to seeing how this wine “sizes” up. I hope it’s a keeper!

    I just had the Cab from them. I bought it based on the price and review on this site. My wife and I enjoyed it! It started off a little hot but mellowed after being exposed longer. I probably should have chilled it down a little, 70 isn’t the best temp. Maybe if it was served closer to 60 it would have been better. Still for $6, it might be one of the better bottles at that price I have had.

    Thanks for the review! I keep seeing this one, but didn’t know anything about it. I’ll buy it based on what you’ve said.

    A friend brought the Fish Eye Merlot over last weekend, and when we first opened it up it was a little rough. It tasted a little metallic…but after about 10 or 15 minutes in the glass it was okay. For $6 a bottle I’d have it again…

    Tried Fish Eye cabernet and it’s quite good–especially for the price which is currently under $6.

    I tasted it on Delta flight from Seoul to Atlanta. I was impressed and googling “fisheye” let me meet your website. I agree to the comment of Victoria. It’s a bit rough and metallic but it became better as time went by. My favorite cheap Merlot is [Italian] Ecco Domani (Merlot) and please try it. I usually go to walmart to buy this. $8.95.

    The Fisheye 2007 merlot was very good. It is fruity and has a nice nose. The legs in the wine glass are long and clean. It complemented T-Bone steaks with baked potatoes and mixed vegetables quite nicely. It was my 55th birthday. I would drink it again on my 56th.
