Ever hike through the woods and just inhale? That smell of ripe, sweet wild berry leaps out of the glass and grabs you. Tons of chocolate, tobacco and cherry really showcase this Merlot-Cabernet blend. The finish is long and will last for what seems to be forever.
By now you have most likely tasted countless California Merlots to the point of fatigue and are looking to reinvigorate your taste buds. Before there was a California, there was Merlot in Bordeaux, so I invite you to go back to its roots and sample the Saint-Emilion. Not as fruit-forward as your typical California Merlot, this possesses more depth and complexity with nuances of smoke and earth supporting flavors of black currant and berries.
A favorite of ours for the past several vintages, the 2000 is the best yet, an intense mouthful of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, long on fruit, intense in its flavor, beautiful in its deep purple hue. Serve with fillet of beef, chili, or calf's liver.
A blend of 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, this Right Bank Bordeaux possesses a ruby color with amber highlights displaying subtle scents of French oak with notes of vanilla and red berry fruit. It is soft and supple, with medium acidity and volume supported by a velvety tannic structure.
The smell of ripe, sweet wild berry leaps out of the glass. Tons of chocolate, tobacco and cherry really showcase this Merlot/Cabernet blend. Silver medal winner at the Paris Fair 2001.
This offering from St.-Emilion is just what you might expect from Bordeaux in this price range. On the nose, blueberry is very present with a hint of lead pencil. The predominant flavors are cassis and tobacco, with medium body and dusty tannins leading into a medium finish with notes of leather.
