Bucket-list Dominus dinner at Next in Chicago with Christian Moueix and seven vintages of Dominus. I poured a glass for Monsieur Moueix and had him sign the bottle. Wine was absolutely singing at 28 years old… still medium deep purple with resolved tannins and expected sediment. Bravo Christian… and thank you for your efforts. — 3 months ago
It’s time for some Merlot on this #MerlotThursday. Let's bring Merlot back!
Dark purple in color with a short purple rim.
Full bodied and elegant with medium acidity.
Dry on the palate and fruit forward.
Rich, yet elegant
Showing black plums, cooked cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, spices, diet cola, tobacco, chocolates, peppercorn and light candy notes.
Nice finish with soft tannins and cherries.
This is a tasty Merlot from the Wagner family. Nicely balanced, easy drinking and good for parties.
Good right out of the bottle, and better after 2 hours of airtime. Good by itself or with food.
I've had a few vintages of this Merlot, and it is very consistent.
Will continue to age nicely in the next 5 to 7 years.
14.6% alcohol by volume.
