(Not so fun fact: White gives me a headache just by smelling it. I'm not joking, it's weird.)
I love this particular Merlot because it strongly says Melissa - it just doesn't say Melissa....It dances Melissa.
My hippie girl roots adore the name, and the design of the label. I feel like it's looking at me, smiling, wearing a FREE HUGS sign. It's why I bought it in the first place - several years ago. Once I tasted it, I was sold. I've been drinking it since - it's like my house wine. Adorable, beatnik, and cheap. Right up my alley.
Come over and I'll share some. I will also make you listen to the Grateful Dead, and will gladly give you a hug. For free, even.
