WSJwine Road to Nowhere Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

This exclusive Merlot/Cabernet blend was crafted by a top South Australian winemaking team, using fruit from six premium parcels (including prime McLaren Vale sites). It's a medium-bodied, impeccably balanced red that's perfect with a juicy steak.

Simply Terrible!!!!
Date:November 11, 2013
My wife and I are in total agreement that there is absolutely nothing we liked about this wine. I thought that maybe bottle #1 was faulty so I opened up bottle #2 and it was just as bad as the first. For a relatively young wine it poured a rather old looking ruddy red brown color which was not a good sign. The wine had an insignificant nose which was mostly smoke with a faint hint of fruit in the background. When it hit our palates all we can say is YUCK! All of the flavors seemed to be off with a very tinny metallic overall taste. The finish was even worse with what my wife called a dish detergent taste. Trying it with different foods did not help at all and the taste actually got worse. Both of our bottles were poured down the drain. This wine gets our lowest recommendation as out of the hundreds of wines that we have tasted from the WSJ Wine Club this bottle is among the worse!!

Sorry for the disappointment. Definitely sounds like a faulty bottle. We’ll be in touch soon to sort out a refund.

Smooth and enjoyable red
Date:March 1, 2013
Although not crazy about screw tops, I really enjoyed this smooth red. Goes well with any meal and on its own. Will definitely have at least one added to future shipments.

Best <$20 I've ever had

What a value! I've been getting the WSJwine Discovery Club for over a year and while most are good, this is the first one that I've wanted to go out and buy a whole case. Keep wines like this coming!

Very enjoyable

This red was delicious with a rare Filet Mignon, and a ratatouille. Slightly acidic with mellow tannins, and a light fruity aftertaste. Quite nice

OK but not the best
Date:December 3, 2012
I was very disappointed that this wine had a twist top. It was a fair wine, but I personally would not purchase again.

Sorry you weren’t sure about the screwcap. They can take some getting used to — but are now used on premium reds and whites from all around the world (especially Australia). However, we want you to be completely satisfied with all the wines you buy from us and we’ll be in touch soon to take care of this.
