Buckley’s Cove 2009 Merlot, South Eastern Australia

Surprisingly, I’ve opened up my narrow mind to try this Australian Merlot.  So the bottle reads, “plump and fleshy body”.

This Buckley’s Cove Merlot does have a nice bouquet, with ruby red color, and finishes more tannic than I prefer.  Younger wine which needs some breathing room.  Overall not bad, definitely drinkable, but I prefer the Shiraz by Buckley’s Cove.   Alcohol 13.8%.  Priced under $10.
