Blackwood Lane Merlot 2014

Member Review by zufrieden:

OK, this wine has the usual spice and port bouquet of all wines produced at Blackwood, but they taste great nonetheless. the wine has, yes a port-like bouquet with vanilla and spice; the entry is smooth with cherry and tobacco on the mid palate. A very nice wine, but not in the vein of the usual Bordelais. Still, if you know the other wines in the stable, this is a fine wine. 90.

Another winner (what's new?) for Blackwood Lane. This Merlot has a nose of red fruit, cherry wood ( such as found in a love chest) which is a marker of Carlos' wines. The palate is more cherry wood and tart red berry, with chocolate in abundance. The finish is long and rich. Better than many Bordeaux "right bank" offerings. 90 points.

Big bold and beautiful; I am not a Merlot follower in general, but this wine for me is a class leader. Charles Herrold (winemaker) brought the best of the Merlot out, with excellent big ripe dark fruit without anything that suggests "sweet". Sit down to a good Rib-Eye on the BBQ with good friends, crack a bottle and you will not be disappointed. This is NOT limited to the 2005 vintage.
