Mollydooker The Scooter 2013 Merlot,
$18.39-$24.99, 88 points, was an opaque black currant purple/red, more ruby at the clear rim where droplets of wine clung to the glass wall.
Interesting smells of caramel and crème brûlée accented with a floral red cherry were unusual.
Heavy-bodied (heavy-plus), carried fair acidity and moderate tannin dominated by the 17% alcohol.
Flavors of plum, black currant, butter, and hints of red raspberry were good.
Finished hot and long with the alcohol and spice.
Others involved in the tasting scored this wine 91 and 92 points with interesting flavor notes of kiwi, oaky-whisky, bourbon, coffee, tobacco, and pink pepper-corn.
