The Other Guys Leese-Fitch California Merlot 2014

$12.99

This Merlot showcases aromas of muddled blackberry with thyme, vanilla, plum preserves, and savory notes of toasted rye bread. The flavors start with jammy blackberry, caramelized vanilla, molasses, and black cherry notes with hints of Herbs du Provence. As the flavors start to evolve, American Oak vanilla nuances, and black currants come forth on the palate. Winery Notes

"Odedi"

Bright ruby in color with light intensity and a brick rim. Fruity nose of plums, cherries, oak, licorice, cloves, alcohol, spices, chocolates, mocha, dark coffee, cola and peppercorn. Medium-bodied with medium plus acidity. Dry on the palate with sweet cherries, plums, blackberries, black currants, wood, vanilla, alcohol, spices, green vegetables, chocolates, tobacco, cola, herbs and black pepper. Short finish with green, bitter tannins. An average red wine, light and balanced. Simple and enjoyable with food. This California Merlot needs an hour to open up and show some tannins. Very hot at the back of the throat which didn't sit well with me. One more year in the bottle might help with the heat and tannins. 13.5% alcohol by volume.
