Value Proposition – Tin Roof Merlot | Tin Roof Cellars
When I look back at what I paid for this wine from Wine Shopper (a mere $5.00) several months ago I am shocked at the quality-price-ratio. This wine actually tastes like a half-decent Merlot and it costs $5?
Needless to say I’m glad I bought a few cases of this offering. Recently, I’ve seen this for sale on Wine Shopper at a slightly higher price of $6.99 and a few retailers like Total Wine have it offered for the same price. At $6.99 this is still a nice bargain. The Tin Roof Merlot 2009 is smooth, easy to drink and well worth the tariff!
