Bright, fresh, mineral-driven example of TSC. At this young stage, give it an hour of air before the licorice, plum, black cherry, dark cocoa and earthy nuances start to show. Not as powerful or concentrated as the 2016 or 2018, the two surrounding vintages, but it's going to drink well earlier and it sells for a song!

Time for some Merlot on this #MerlotThursday. Here's a French one.

Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.

Nice nose of black currants, plums, vegetables, wood, wet leaves, herbs, peppercorn, vinaigrette, earth and light leather.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with plums, cherries, strawberries, wood, vanilla, earth, spices, tobacco leaf, wet leaves, black tea, dark coffee, peppercorn, vegetables and green herbs.

Medium minus on the finish with firm tannins and tangy cranberries.

This is a very young Merlot from Bordeaux. I opened it yesterday and it wasn't really there, so I decided to give it another day. Today it is better, but still unbalanced.

Needs 5 to 10 years to mature properly.

Better with food right now. A little unbalanced now, but worked for me with the Brie cheese.

A blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. Aged for 18 months in French oak barrels.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

88 points.

$30.
