French Bordeaux 2012. This is predominantly Merlot. Nice medium body wine. I prefer a little heavier Merlots but this went well with dinner.

100% merlot - espresso and mineral on the nose with black plum skin, black cherry, cassis. Full, ripe, well-balanced on palate. Tricked up both of my fellow somm-wanna-bes at our biweekly blind tasting. #sommstudy

A nice dinner compliment. Soft, yet packed a bit of punch.

Given for our 2015 birthdays from Sabine and Maarten with the 2005. Opened 1/2/2016 at kalaloch -did quasi vertical tasting. Nose: berry, smoke, nut, strawberry-rhubarb pie, vanilla. Taste: SPICY, dark cherry, wood smoke, pine. Very full but not a heavy finish. May be the smokey-est wine we have ever tasted. (Would be excellent with steak!)

Complex notes of ripe plum, hint of herbs, and with a heavy body. Slightly dry. Clean aftertaste.

A little cheese and wine in Seattle before dinner. Light with good notes if charcoal.
