It’s time for some #MerlotThursday. Here is a nice one from Washington State.
Dark ruby in color with a wide brick rim.
Nose of cherries, plums, currants, strawberries, cedar, earth, vanilla, licorice, spices, chocolates, tobacco, leather and black pepper. Gorgeous nose.
Full bodied and smooth with medium plus acidity and long legs.
Dry on the palate with plums, cherries, strawberries, currants, vanilla, cedar, leather, chocolates, tobacco, licorice, peppercorn, spices and light vegetables.
Medium plus on the finish with soft tannins and tangy pomegranates.
This is a great Merlot from Horse Haven Hills. Nicely balanced with a tangy ending.
This 8 year old is drinking very nicely, with nice complexity and a great mouthfeel. Peaking now.
Tastes very much like a Napa Merlot. Very Nice.
Needs a couple of hours to open up properly and show the tannins.
