2009 Bella Sera Sicily Merlot Italy 13.5% $8

Toasty and light spicy on the nose with some tobacco notes, a touch of plum skin, some wood sweetness and some espresso crema notes. Soft and broad in the mouth, filled with relatively rich black cherry fruit that's a touch sweet yet well supported by integrated acids and some fine tannins. There's a touch of licorice on the back end that leads to a taut, lean though refreshing finish. Sees modest tannins covered by sweet wild cherry fruit. Easy drinking and nicely mid-sized. 84pts
