This past Friday Night’s wine…
This week we had no guests – so fewer bottles 🙂 Again a light Shabbos so lighter wine was in order.
Four Gates Merlot La Rochelle 2001 – Score: A-
The Merlot has a vibrant and almost shimmering purple color – quite lovely to look at. The nose is filled with cherry, raspberry, and strawberries along with a hint of oak and butterscotch. This medium bodied wine’s mouth is filled with a carry over of the nose’s raspberries and strawberries. It has a mid palate of acid notes and spicy wood. The finish is long with butterscotch, acid notes, medium tannins, and more spicy wood.
