how long is Redwood Creek merlot good?

Answer From Expert Roger Bohmrich MW

This is an inexpensive, soft wine that is for immediate drinking, not cellaring. It will probably hold its fruit for a few years in bottle, but that does not mean it will be better than when it was released. This is a wine to buy as you need it.
