This is a very impressive Merlot and whether Dad is an oenophile, wine collector, connoisseur, or not, Painted Rock’s Merlot 2011 can’t help but impress. Deep, dark ruby red in a glass, the first thing that is apparent on the nose is this wine is rich. Ripe, fresh fruits, both black and red, anise, French oak, dark chocolate, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla all come forward at first sniff. On the palate, the wine is dry, just as fruit rich and powerful with velvety, mouth coating tannins. This Merlot is full-bodied for sure, with the ability to enjoy now (decant) and to become even more elegant with a couple of years in cellar. Perfect as a gift for Dad or for a Dad’s Day BBQ – definitely think rib steak, or pair with a beef tenderloin or rib roast.
