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.
