Lush and vivid, the 2018 Blueline Estate Merlot opens with pronounced aromas of tangy dark cherry, raspberry compote and warm chestnut, with telltale notes of mandarin orange peel and Asian five spice providing precision and lift. Across the palate, the vibrant red fruit shines, accented by warm blackberry pie filling, roasted nut and hoisin notes. While supple and gracious in texture, Blueline’s mineral-rich soils add defined firmness to its structure and noticeable lift on the finish. The subtle nuances of aromatics, flavor and texture give Blueline Merlot a uniquely wide breadth of food pairing options from Mediterranean to Asian fare.
Blend: 86% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Malbec and 1% Petit Verdot
A rock star of a Merlot, the 2018 Merlot Blueline Estate boasts a deep purple color as well as a sexy, up-front bouquet of blueberries, ripe cherries, spring flowers, candied violets, and cedary spice. With medium to full-bodied richness, a lively, elegant texture, and seamless tannins, it’s going to put a smile on your face any time over the coming 10-15 years. It reminds me of a top notch Pomerol from the likes of Marielle Cazaux.
