It is time for some Merlot on this #MerlotThursday.
Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.
Nose of black currants, plums, cooked cherries, oak, cloves, vanilla, licorice, herbs, tobacco leaf, black tea, black pepper, coffee, pencil lead and earth.
Medium plus in body with medium acidity.
Dry on the palate with plums, cherries, currants, oak, light vanilla, spices, dark chocolates, earth, peppercorn, herbs, tobacco leaf and light forest floor.
Medium finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.
This is a tasty Merlot blend from Graves. A unique blend for this region.
Showing nice complexity with a nice mouthfeel. Tangy and interesting.
Good right out of the bottle and better after 2 hours of airtime.
Will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years.
A good food wine and good by itself too. Will pair nicely with BBQ Meats.
A blend of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Malbec. Aged for 15 months in French oak barrels.
12.5% alcohol by volume.

Gooseberry, clove and grapefruit nose with lemon peel and nano peach slivers. Pear and pineapple afterthoughts. Pithy entry of undulating weight, lemon lime and grapefruit, a chalkiness ensues, briny and a touch of angelica.

Just for the curiosity. This is way too young but full of promise. Dark purple. On nose this is full of dark fruits, herbs, cedar and licorice. On palate this is youthfully upfront as expected. There is nice balance with deep ripe fruits, acidity and fine tannins making a solid appearance. Give this 3-5 years and you are in for a treat if I think this continues to drink well for another decade after that — 7 days ago
