Toscana Merlot 2017

I’ve only been able to call the exact wine on a blind tasting once before in my life. But I got lucky again with this one. This wine is truly unique. It has a distinct aromatic profile that I’ve never experienced in an other wine. A sort of lactic quality combined with a very potent fruitiness. Very, very polished. Youthfull, generous with a firm grip. — 13 days ago

Tamarack Cellars

Columbia Valley Merlot 2016

Label is well done if a bit standard. Like the cone and needle border. Tamarack is my brother’s middle name (aka larch), so I had to buy this one. Dark plum skin color. Aromas are good. Dark fruit juices and sauces mixed with woodsy freshness. Slightest hint of red meat too. Flavors are chewy, fleshy and earthy. Cherry Coke and blackberry pastry. Maybe a purple mulberry too. A little anise/fennel/licorice root. Or maybe that’s sarsaparilla. Plenty of tannin to keep the fruit flavors from running wild. Just enough wood to give it a forestry feel. This is a nice structured Merlot from WA. Not quite as dynamic or complex as the weighty bottle implies, but it’s still a great bottle. — 21 days ago

Duckhorn Vineyards

Napa Valley Merlot 2016

A pre-Mothers day meal that included an experiment of smoked fish and this was one of the two bottles we decided to pair. While it may not have matched the rub spices exactly, this bottle rarely (if ever) is a poor choice. A classic that we will keep having in the future. — 11 days ago

Reserve Lot# 226 Oak knoll Merlot 2020

Color of dark purple. Nose of cherry jam, blackberry, medicinal strawberry, and milky vanilla. Taste of dark fruits with slight sweetness and mellow tannins, ripe grape, and grape jam. Aftertaste shows just a bit more spicy and tobacco leaves note, plus nice acidity. Clean and enjoyable. — 17 days ago

Ribbon Vale Margaret River Merlot 2019

Thank you Miss Wood for sending over this sample bottle of your 2019 Ribbon Vale Merlot.

It’s drinking absolutely beautifully in its youth, however I can imagine with a bit of time in the cellar, it’s going to be exceptional with some extra age on it.

It’s 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc.

I found it an enticing brilliant garnet red colour in the glass. On the nose it smells of fresh cherries, raspberries and blackberries with a hint of floral perfume, leather and vanilla. It’s silky smooth and super balanced on the palate round s delicious ‘I need more’ finish. Gorgeous!

All opinions are my own. Drink what you enjoy!
