Printhie Mountain Range Merlot 2013

Forward, touches of fresh tobacco and gamey notes, but really it's more about the heavy hand of oak here and the vanilla and caramel that lends to the wine.

Medium bodied, a warmth that betrays its alcohol. Spice, a little tapenade and dried herb. Acid and tannin at least provide a spine for the wine to build on.

Vanilla, coffee grounds, mulberry all serve to carry through to the finish. Priced well, in an approachable drink-now style, just not what I would look for in a Merlot. 87
