It’s time for #MerlotThursday. Here is a delicious one from Napa Valley.
Dark inky in color with a short purple rim.
Strong nose of blackberries, black plums, figs, dried fruits, cooked raisins, vanilla, cedar, licorice, cloves, light vegetables, cola, earth, chocolates, tobacco, mocha and black pepper.
Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry and extremely fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, vanilla, cedar, earth, licorice, spices, chocolates, tobacco, mocha and coke.
Long finish with firm tannins and tangy cherries.
This is a delicious Merlot from Napa Valley. Big bold and beautiful.
Showing a great mouthfeel with nice complexity, once it's opened up. Intense, rich and extracted. Teeth staining color. I've had it many times and it is very consistent.
Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up and shows some tannins. So give it time.
I've had this vintage 6 months ago and it is showing nicer now.
Good by itself or with food. A great sipping wine.
14.5% alcohol by volume.

This is fantastic. Worst thing about this wine is that it runs out. Cheers — a month ago
