Lindeman’s Wines Bin 40 Merlot 2014, Southeastern Australia

My Rating 83 Points.   

Price $7.



Dark ruby in color with a purplish/brick rim.

On the nose, blackberries, black currants, cherries, plums, cloves, oak, vanilla, licorice, chocolates, coffee, earth, spices and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and long thin legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, licorice, oak, cherries, plums, dirt, spices, chocolates, mocha and black pepper.

Medium finish with round tannins and tart cherries.

A very drinkable bulk wine from Australia, at a great price point. Good party wine and good right out of the bottle.

Simple and a little off balance, but better now, while still young, then later. Much better than the 2013 vintage.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
