  • Starting to B-day off…….53% Cabernet, 47% Merlot….WOW, this is a lot richer and darker than I've seen in a Screagle! More Harlan-like;-)……Dark and rich cherry, wild berry, plum….liqueured but not too sweet….very nice mocha, dark chocolate covered espresso bean, licorice, earth compost, crushed graphite. Love the violets and white flowers……good firm structure, and pretty good balance. Not the silky feminine style like the big boy….but tasty non-the-less. Will like to see this one in a few more years!

  • Popped and drunk.
    Delicious nose. Nice chocolate, light spices. Great velvety mouth feel. Well rounded flavors.

  • Medium bodied, with an equal doses of red and black fruits complicated by licorice, earth and oak, the round textured wine could have used a little more ripeness and concentration. I would not age this a long time hoping for a lot of complexity to emerge in the future.

  • Very forward merlot flavor and nose, good deep color, cab franc finish, lasting on the palate, drink in a couple more years.

  • What better time than now to test drive this one. What is Screagle's interpretation of the merlot varietal? Rather than give a tasting note, I'll provide a DIY home recipe so that you might have the opportunity to make your own:

    6oz raspberries
    2oz ultra ripe strawberries
    2oz blueberries
    3oz heavy whipping cream
    1oz coconut milk
    1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    1oz rubbing alcohol
    2oz ice (for dilution purposes)

    Place all ingredients into blender and blend on medium for 20 seconds. Pour and enjoy.

    Taster's Opinion: Enjoyable fun drink for either cold winter nights or an evenings at your local steak house. Goes well with ribeye or as a dessert beverage with creme brulee topped with berries. Worth the price?? No sir but a fun glass of merlot. Suggested retail price per glass at said steak house.......$9.00-12.00.
