It's time for some #MerlotThursday. Here is a fruit forward Merlot from Bordeaux.

Showing black and red fruits with wood, vanilla, earth, vegetables, spices, tobacco leaf, wet leaves, black tea, black pepper, spices, dark coffee, earth and leather.

Medium finish with firm tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is still young and a little harsh, even after opening up, with nice complexity and a great mouthfeel. Needed 3 hours to open up.

Showing great potential. This is from a great vintage, and will age nicely in the next 20 years. I would suggest not to touch it for another 3 years.

I've had the 2012 last year, and although this is much younger, it is much tastier already.

Robert Parker 94 points.

I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

A blend of 84% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

$100.

Full bodied and full fruit. This could almost pass as a Napa wine.
