Columbia Valley Merlot 2019

Dark ruby purple. Inviting nose of ashen dark plum. Medium bodied palate echoes the palate with Bordelaise-ish graphitey mineral undertones and a firm (medium plus) tannic structure. All balanced by juicy, medium plus acidity making for an excellent New World Merlot with Old World food-friendliness. Upscale your meatloaf or keep your Filet Mignon grounded. Drink now through 2026. — a year ago

Yakima Valley Merlot 2016

It's time for #MerlotThursday. Here is a nice surprise from Washington State.

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, plums, currants, vanilla, licorice, spices, light earth, tobacco, cedar, chocolates, pencil lead, black pepper and light vegetables.

Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with plums, black currants, coffee, cedar, pencil lead, peppercorn, vanilla, licorice, light vegetables and earth.

Medium finish with soft tannins and tangy cranberries.

This is a very nice Merlot from Yakima Valley in Washington State.
Showing nice complexity and a great mouthfeel.

Tastes like a Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon. A nice surprise. A Merlot for the Cabernet drinker.

Needs 90 minutes minutes to open up properly. Drinking nicely now and will be better in the next 5 years.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with Lamb chops on the BBQ. Good with cheeses too.

Thank you Wendy for sharing.

14.4% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

Hamilton Russell Vineyards

Hemel-En-Aarde Valley Pinot Noir 2019

Cheers to the wines of South Africa 🇿🇦

This Hamilton Russell Pinot Noir is unique in that the grapes used to produce it primarily came, not from Hamilton Russell vineyards, but rather from neighboring vignerons.

Hamilton Russell made this unprecedented decision in the aftermath of devastating wild fires that imparted smoke taint to its estate-grown grapes. Unwilling to compromise on quality, I applaud Hamilton Russell for its tenacity and willingness to forge ahead to create this delicious Pinot Noir for its customers. 👏👏👏

This wine is comprised of fruit hailing from three different Hemel-en-Aarde (aptly meaning “heaven and earth”) Wards within the Walker Bay District, in the Cape South Coast Region of South Africa’s Western Cape.

This wine is a reflection of community, camaraderie, and commitment to excellence.❤️

👁 It is medium ruby with pale fuchsia rim variation.

👃 On the nose this wine has a medium(+) intensity of youthful aromas. The aromas include candied cherry, strawberry rhubarb preserves, violet, dried orange peel, white pepper, star anise, clove, and nutmeg.

👄 On the palate this wine is dry. It has medium(+) acidity, a medium body, medium alcohol, medium tannins, and medium intensity of flavors consistent with the nose. This wine has a medium finish.

Hamilton Russell, Pinot Noir, Walker Bay, ABV 13.5%. Vintage 2019.
