It's time for some Merlot on this #MerlotThursday. Here's a nice one from Washington State.
Ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.
Fruity nose of black plums, black cherries, light wood, spices, coffee, dark chocolates, pencil lead and peppercorn.
Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry on the palate with black plums, cooked cherries, light oak, spices, vanilla, licorice, light vegetables, tobacco leaf and peppercorn.
Nice finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.
This is a very enjoyable Merlot from Walla Walla Valley. This 6 year old is spicy and tangy. Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel.
Better after a couple of hours of airtime, but good right out of the bottle too.
Good by itself or with food. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats, cheeses, and light appetizers.
14.4% alcohol by volume.

This and the biondi Otis were the best wines we had in Sicily. Pinot noir style, but with the Etna terroir. — 3 years ago
