LBD Vineyards Little Black Dress Merlot 2015, California

My Rating 75 Points.   

Price $12.
Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Barnyard nose with black currants, plums, bell pepper, black cherries, oak, cloves, earth, light vanilla, tobacco and black pepper.

Medium bodied with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, plums, cherries, currants, wood, vanilla, licorice, cloves, spices, bitter vegetables, dark chocolates, tobacco, herbs and peppercorn.

Medium finish with soft tannins and bitter greens.

This California Merlot is unbalanced and simple, with lots of bitter notes. Not worth the calories for me…

Might be a little better in a year.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
