Time for some Merlot on this #MerlotThursday.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.
Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, spices, light wood, licorice, earth, peppercorn, tobacco, coffee, and dark chocolates.
Spicy finish with soft tannins and tangy raspberries.
This is a nice red blend from California. This 6 year old is drinking very nicely now, especially with food. Very spicy, Interesting and pleasant.
Showing good acidity, that pairs nicely with food. The zinfandel and Syrah give it that spiciness, and the Merlot gives it that tangy finish, a very nice combination, especially with the grilled Meats.
I paired it with BBQ lamb chops.
A blend of 42% Merlot, 46% Syrah and 12% Zinfandel. Only 92 cases produced.
15% alcohol by volume.

2018 Vintage. Decadent, bold and delicious. A rich, rowdy red is full-up on flavors Cab Franc drinkers crave. This red is loud and complex, with incredibly juicy fruit flavors and a rich plummy finish. Suggested pairing is a pizza with plenty of basil and parmesan - and a drizzle of olive oil on top.

Threat nose and taste a bit of a twang that lingers — a year ago
Blood orange and lemon rind with notes of warm asphalt, sesame oil, and dry toast in the bouquet. Tangerine, golden apples, and mango with hints of sesame oil, honey, and toasted almonds on the palate. Unique canned wine that would probably go well with Asian dishes. — 2 months ago

Dry on the palate with black cherries, strawberries, red currants, pomegranates, oak, tobacco, earth, light vegetables, herbs, spices, light cola, peppercorn, leather and dark chocolates.

This is a tasty and easy drinking red blend from Mendocino County in California. Nice, spicy and engaging with a nice mouthfeel.
This 6 year old is drinking very nicely now all by itself. Tangy and interesting.
This Single Vineyard is good right out of the bottle and better after 30 minutes of airtime. After 2 hours, it really hits home, when some earth notes come in and bring more complexity, so be patient.
At this point, the high alcohol is not very noticeable.
I had it blind ( I knew it is from California) and called a Merlot, Syrah and Zinfandel blend. Pretty happy with that. Although there is a bigger portion of Syrah in this blend, it definitely feels like the Merlot is taking over.
A blend of 42% Merlot, 12% Zinfandel and 46% Syrah. A very small production of only 92 cases. Handpicked.
15% alcohol by volume.
