The Other Guys Merlot California Leese-Fitch 2006

Member Review by dynowine:

Pop and pour. Good QPR for the complexity, smoothness, and balance. Nose of caramel, brown fig, spice, and hints of resin and smokiness. Smooth in the mouth, not too acidic, good tannins with layered tastes of plum, blackberry, and hints of pepper, spice, and resin. Initially a bit watery in the mid-palate but with time became spicier and fuller. On the finish seems to revisit the front of the mouth with an echo of acid, tannin, and wood and fruit with hints of resin. Medium plus body, medium acid and tannin, dry to off-dry.
