Baron Herzog Wine Cellars Clarksburg Merlot 2013 California

image

My Rating 78 Points. 
Price $15.

Dark ruby in color with a brick rim.

Barnyard on the nose with blackberries, plums, sour cherries, cloves, oak, vanilla, spices and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity, long legs and a nice mouth feel.

Dry and fruity on the palate with cherries, red currants, plums, cloves, oak, vanilla, wood, earth and peppercorn.

Medium finish with grippy,green, bitter tannins and sour cherries.

A very simple Merlot, yet drinkable (if you have to), not smooth at all and unbalanced. Will not buy again.

14% alcohol by volume.
