It is time for #MerlotThursday! Here is a nice one from Saint Emilion.

Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.

Fruity nose with black currants, blackberries, cherries, vanilla, earth, cedar, leather, bell pepper, licorice, black pepper, spices, wet leaves, vegetables, pencil lead, tobacco, coffee and chocolates.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with black currants, black cherries, cedar, earth, vanilla, leather, tobacco, chocolates, bell pepper, bitter vegetables, dark coffee, bitter herbs, pencil lead and peppercorn.

Long finish with firm tannins and tangy cranberries.

This is a great Merlot based blend from Bordeaux. Showing nice complexity and mouthfeel. Not fully balanced yet, and needs many years in the bottle to mature properly.

This is from a great vintage and still young, but already drinkable with lots of fruits.

Good right out of the bottle and gets earthier and austere after a couple of hours in a decanter.

A blend of 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc. Aged for 18 months in French oak barrels.

14.5 % alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$60.

Black cherry, heavy tannins, a little tobacco. Gets delightfully jammy after decanting.

Winey, with slight notes of wine. #wine #redwine
