It is time for a delicious Merlot on this #MerlotThursday.
Deep purple/ Inky in color with a short purple rim.
Big strong nose with blueberries, blackberries, black cherries, licorice, cedar, light vanilla, spices, raisins, chocolates, dried figs, light alcohol and peppercorn.
Full bodied, smooth and elegant, with medium plus acidity and long legs.
Dry and very fruity on the palate with cooked cherries, cedar, espresso, vanilla, spices, cola, herbs, beef jerky, tar, peppercorn pencil lead, dark chocolates and tobacco leaf.
Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.
This is a gorgeous Merlot based blend from Napa Valley.
Good right out of the bottle and better after an hour of airtime.
Tasty and concentrated. Rich and powerful, and not for the faint of hearts.
This young Bordeaux blend is already fabulous, will be so much better in 10 years, and will age nicely in the next 15 years. Would be nice to revisit it again in 5 years.
A blend of 67% Merlot and 33% Cabernet sauvignon. A small production of only 300 cases.
14.9% alcohol by volume.
