It's time for some #Merlot on this #MerlotThursday. Here is a nice one from Bordeaux.

Dark ruby in color with a wide brick/ reddish rim.

Nose of blueberries, black currants, wood, vanilla, vegetables, spices, tobacco, forest floor, nail polish remover, Indian spices and black pepper.

Full bodied with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with black currants, cherries, sweet raspberries, tobacco, cedar, leather, vanilla, vegetables, licorice, spices, dark chocolates, black pepper, peppercorn, tobacco, earth, green herbs and forest floor.

Medium plus in finish with firm tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a very nice Right Bank Bordeaux. Probably has some flaw on the nose, but not corked. Much nicer on the palate.

This 15 year old from a great vintage, is rich and extracted with a lot of earth notes. Showing a nice mouthfeel with nice complexity.

Needs a few hours to open up properly. Drinking very nicely now, and will continue to evolve in the next 5 to 10 years.

Thank you Jesus for sharing this with me.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with cheeses, crackers and fresh berries.

A blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged for 16 months in Oak barrels

14.5% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$60.

Cedar, violet, leather, chocolate, dried cherries. Bold with plenty of tannins. Classic steakhouse wine. Pair with a high-quality cut of beef or drink it on its own. The '05 has plenty of years in front of it. With Grace and Cathay.
