hi there! I just saw your post and had to reply since that was a color I was looking at just a few days ago...
I have darker hair than you - very dark brown - but I wanted to get some of that red -like cherry cola red (Feria makes a good one) or merlot - like you had said - streaked through my hair, without looking "streaky" ,,, if that makes sense.
I used some base color to do my roots and the Garnier cherry red for dark hair - a new one - and I actually got it! I'll post a pic in a bit... I was pretty amazed at myself - for not being too good with color! but it worked!
