It’s not the Claret, but…

Veritas Winery's 2010 Merlot

…the Veritas 2010 Merlot is the first merlot that doesn’t give me the squished-up lemon face.  It has a nice smokiness to it that, as it was explained to me, is due to the scorching of the oak barrels prior to use.

While I can drink this merlot, it’s not my favorite wine.  So far, I think that would still be the Claret (“How I like Claret!” – A Quote by Keats), although I will have to hold off on that final decision until after we open the Othello…a very yummy (based on two tastings) red wine that has around 80% brandy.  Good stuff to keep you warm on a chilly day.

Of course, I’m really looking forward to when we open the meads we purchased from Hill Top Berry Farm and Winery.  mmmmmmm
