Aspire Merlot Blend 2013

Aromas of vanilla extract, cedar, caramel and cherries. Palette was rounded with pepper spice, cherry, chocolate, plums and cedar. Merlot dominant wine (blended with Cab Sav and Syrah). High acidity, tannins felt a bit astringent. A good red considering the region. Surprising find. #merlot #canadianwine — 15 days ago

2009 Duckhorn Three Palms Vineyard Merlot

Medium body. Not as structured, firm as I expected. Soft and approachable. A pleasant wine.

Tenuta Alzatura

Montefalco Rosso 2015

Vintage 2015 / wine from #umbria central #italy with the unusual blend of #sangiovese #sagrantino and #merlot (on barrel). It was quite harsh in bitters/aftertaste immediately after opening, tannins also. But when it had aeration the wine softened and even shows frivolousness 🙃 Beautiful strawberries in smell, smooth taste. I liked this transformation. Awesome PRQ. I presume it will even gets better within a few years. — 16 days ago

Château Cap Saint-Martin

Cuvée Prestige Premières Côtes de Blaye Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Vintage 2015 / Mostly #merlot from selected plots in the 22 ha vineyard, with #cabernetsauvignon. Yesterday the regular cuvee was more pleasant with frivolous red fruit. Today after 24 hours aeration the bouquet of this wine is more open: pleasant spicyness and impression of cherries and plums. The cedar smell of sigarboxes. And my God such a velvety taste, roundness in excelsis! This wine has potential to be cellared but it’s super seductive now. #blaye #bordeaux Partnered it with dry aged entrecote, forest mushrooms and red wine sauce. — 2 months ago

Ancient Peaks

Paso Robles Merlot 2016

If I tasted this blind I could have sworn it was a Bordeaux. This #pasorobles #merlot is special - laid back fruit, pronounced acidity, earthy spice with some coffee, pepper and a faint bit of licorice. Nice wine if you’re like me and really prefer the Old World style. — a month ago
