Columbia Valley Merlot 2014

Charles (Chad) Bucklin

Heading towards old world characteristics with more restraint and structure. Well made. Fruit undefined but just ripened at moment. Fine finish. #merlot #lecole #washington #ctbucklinwine — 17 days ago

Vega del Castillo

Crianza Tempranillo Blend 2009

Vintage 2009 - Dutch bottling by Roel Berger Roermond - Navarra from tempranillo, cabernet sauvignon and merlot - vieilli en fut chêne - this wine is tremendously juicy, spicy and fruity. Cherries in smell, also leather, chocolate impression, and a spicy taste. I love this frivolous wine, it gives enormous hapinness. #tempranillo #merlot #cabernetsauvignon #navarra #spain #dutchbottling With steak and mushrooms. — 3 months ago

Château Turcaud

Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

The greatness of 2015 for well under $20. Lots of stuffing; ripe, structured, mocha, gravel, cigar wrapper. Proper claret. #turcaud #cabernetsauvignon #merlot #bordeauxblend — 6 months ago

Ripe black fruit and coco with med - complexity. Palate was silky and full with low acid and elevated tannins. Straightforward character. Short and hot finish. #eagleglen #napavalley #merlot — 17 days ago

Chateau Grand Jouan

Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Vintage 2014 - got this wine as a present. I like it: a honest petit #Bordeaux from the vineyards between Dordogne and Garonne. Indeed: Entre Deux Mers. Frivolous bouquet with predominant #merlot and both #cabernetsauvignon and #cabernetfranc, smooth drinking. Does exactly what it is made for: gives pleasure! — 4 months ago

Château du Grand Barrail

La Révélation Des Vignobles Denis Lafon Premières Côtes de Blaye Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

Vintage 2004 - it’s quite comforting and energizing to drink a good bottle from my cellar after a hard day’s work. This special cuvee from old merlot vines exceeds my expectations: very rich and complex smell with tobacco, vanilla, morello cherries and a taste of minerals, beautiful ripened. What a great effort of grower Denis Lafon this is, it makes me só happy. #bordeaux #merlot #cotedeblaye #petitbordeaux Partnered it with a deer hamburger. — 22 days ago

Château Lassalle

Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Vintage 2014 - crimson rim, very dark colour, very young and less accessible than other Bordeaux I tasted from 14. There are promising hints of cherries in the smell, laurel, leather-tones and a hint of chocolate and mocca. Powerfull in taste. Partly made of 'vieilles vignes' and one can taste this. Good concentration. Promising domain. #bordeaux #graves #vieillesvignes #cabernetsauvignon #merlot — 6 months ago
