This is a nice and simple Merlot from California.

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

Showing black fruits with earth, vegetables, spices, chocolates, tobacco, mocha and black pepper.

The nose resembles the palate, yet a little lighter.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Better than I expected from an inexpensive Merlot.

Found it for $4 and decided to take a shot. Not bad at all. Good enough for
#MerlotThursday 😃

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

13.5% alcohol by volume.

86 points.

Ruby red color. Aromas/flavors of blackberry, plum, sour cherry, strawberry, toast, oak, smoke, mushroom, and leather. Just a hint of pepper on the palate. Medium-bodied with full tannins. Straightforward, but nothing special.
