Review: 2016 Robert Hall Merlot Paso Robles

Robert Hall is a fairly large producer in the Paso Robles region of California, with a focus on everyday wines. This budget merlot punches right at its weight class, offering a blunt and simple wine that feels built specifically to sell for $9 per glass at your local Chili’s. Weighty up front with notes of well-sweetened, dried berries and gummy prunes, there’s also a beefy character here that starts on the nose and never lets up straight through to the finish, which is otherwise surprisingly herbal, almost dusty at times. Weird, and not overly satisfying — and nothing like any merlot I’ve come to know.
