As one more piece of evidence that this Merlot thing has gotten out of control, here's one from New Zealand, a place not widely known for its reds. The good news, however, is that it turns out to be a rather pleasant red table wine, reasonably competitive at the $10 price point. I'm told that Longridge is a label of Corbans, one of New Zealand's larger and well-respected wineries.
Corbans 1995 "Longridge" Hawkes Bay (NZ) Merlot ($9.99)
FOOD MATCH: Fine with a roast chicken.
