It's time for some Merlot on this #MerlotThursday.
Ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.
Strong nose of cherries, sweet strawberries, black currant, plums, earth, oak, barnyard, vegetables, spices, wet leaves and black pepper.
Medium plus in body with medium acidity.
Dry on the palate with strawberries, raspberries, plums, cherries, light oak, spices, earth, vegetables, bitter herbs, dark chocolates, tobacco leaf, black pepper and coffee.
Short finish with soft tannins and tangy raspberries.
This is a nice Merlot based blend from Bordeaux. Balanced and easy drinking with a soft mouthfeel. Already showing nice complexity.
Needs time to open up. I gave it two hours. A little stinky, but some like that too.
Would be interesting to revisit it in 3 years and see how it evolves.
I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses. Paired very nicely with the wild mushroom Brie cheese from the Netherlands.
A blend of 71% Merlot, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc.
13.5% alcohol by volume.

Non vintage. But must be 2020. Twenty years ago I could not have imagined that such wine could be made around the corner in Brabant, Holland. The cuvee is made from Cabernet Cantor and is really dark. Nice smell from old farm roses, berry liqueur, even some chocolate tones. Smooth taste. Barrel aged. Incredible. The wine is called Wild Red (Dutch: Wilde Rode) | Paired with cod fillets in Spanish tomatosauce. — 2 months ago
