DeLoach Vineyards Heritage Reserve 2009 Merlot, $8.99-$11.99, 86 points, appeared degrees of copper/red colors a bleeding broad clear wine ring and leggy glass wall.
Aromas needed considerable teasing, but a bit of pomegranate and sour plum were just okay.
Medium-bodied with fair acidity and soft tannins carried flavors reflective of the aromas plus hints of red cherry.
Finished long on intense hot spices, revived tannic influence, trailing palate, and a spot-on 13.5% alcohol.
Paired well with my spicy beef goulash.
