Time for some Merlot on this #MerlotThursday.
This is a very tasty Bordeaux blend from Medoc.
Showing black fruits with chocolate notes, tobacco, vanilla, licorice, wood, spices, earth, light vegetables, pencil lead, bitter herbs, light cola and peppercorn.
Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry on the palate and nicely balanced with lots of fruits and a nice mouthfeel.
Will age nicely in the next 10 to 15 years.
Rich and good right out of the bottle. Becomes earthier after 3 hours of airtime.
Good by itself or with food, and would pair nicely with BBQ Meats.
A blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc. Aged in French oak barrels for 12 months.
14.5% alcohol by volume.
