2007 Velvet Devil Merlot (http://www.kvintners.com/wines.php)

Posted on September 14, 2009

At Mulberry for restaurant week, finishing up with a nice bottle of Washington Merlot. Very strong flavors of chocolate-covered bacon, believe it or not…

That said, the green tannins make it a little too bitter for my taste. Very similar to drinking baking chocolate without any of the fruit forward flavors to redeem it. Definitely a head’s wine, and a very complex flavor for the price.

Later: The wine really opens up with hints of plum, blackberry and vanilla…definitely something you want to let breathe for an hour or so…

Price: $10 (retail), $25 (at Mulberry)
