Lockhart 2010 Merlot

Lockhart 2010 Merlot, $9.90-$13.75, 89 points, appears to be a true ruby-red color, as true as any I've seen, and has the diagnostic clear rim of a young red wine.
Earth, sweet cherry, and licorice are aromatic.
Texturally smooth (not as smooth as velvet;-) with a medium-plus body carrying good acidity, fair fine tannin, blackberry and black cherry flavors in a juicy package.
The moderately long finish is the trailing palate with the addition of plum notes and white pepper.
Lockhart 2010 Merlot offers a tremendous quality, price, ratio (QPR) red wine.
Bought at the Londonderry Hannaford's supper market.

  1. I like your QPR concept...although it does remind me of Queens Park Rangers F.C....go Liverpool! Sorry, little EPL mania took over there.
