Gil Family Estates Honoro Vera Merlot 2014 Jumilla, Spain

My Rating 84 Points.   

Price $10. 
Dark inky in color with a light purple rim.

Light and bitter nose of blackberries, plums, cherries, currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, earth, spices, peppercorn, leather, smoke, chocolates, green herbs and spices.

Full bodied with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, cherries, licorice, oak, vanilla, bitter vegetables, green pepper, tobacco leaf, dark coffee, earth, leather and peppercorn.

Medium finish with round tannins and sour cherries.

A nice everyday red wine from Spain. A little harsh on the palate, and bitter. Nevertheless, works well by itself, but better with food.

I had it 6 months ago, and liked it better this time around.

I paired it with beef brisket and potatoes.

15% alcohol by volume.
