3 Badge Beverage Leese Fitch Merlot 2014, California

My Rating 82 Points.   

Price $13. 

Dark purple in color with a wide reddish rim.
Fruity nose with plums, cherries, licorice, oak, mint, earth, green herbs, vegetables, green pepper, tobacco leaf, alcohol, burnt rubber and black pepper.

Medium bodied and spicy with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with plums, currants, oak, earth, leather, green pepper, chocolates, tobacco, herbs, spices, bitter vegetables and peppercorn.

Spicy finish with soft round tannins

This is an average red wine from California. Not fully balanced and simple.

Probably not going to last too long anymore, so drink it sooner than later. Enjoyable by itself, but better with food.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
