Double Black Merlot 2018, Paso Robles, California

Time for some Merlot on this #MerlotThursday.

Dark ruby in color with a reddish rim.

Fruity nose of plums, cherries, wood, cloves, light vegetables, vanilla, spices, earth, light barnyard and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with black cherries, black plums, currants, light oak, spices, earth, wet leaves, herbs and dark coffee.

Medium finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a nice Merlot from Paso Robles. Easy drinking with a nice mouthfeel.

Needs an hour to open up properly and come into itself.

A nice wine to sip on by the porch. Good by itself or with food.

Thank you Wendy for sharing.

I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

14.3% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

$14.
