Lost Valley Winery Merlot 2007
External Reviews for Lost Valley Winery Merlot
You will find that this wine is a great accompaniment for any meal where red wine is a must. With a rich, dense, crimson purple hue and elegant, luscious character you will certainly enjoy every drop. The perfectly ripened fruit and well structured oak shine through and give the wine a decidedly aristocratic nature. The palate is concentrated yet smooth with subtle, soft tannins running through big red berry fruit and more than a hint of white truffle chocolate. Spearmint and black pepper give the wine fine structure, balance and a lingering length. One could say that this is a perfect wine but you would have to make up your own mind about that. Aged for 15 months on French barriques and then prime American oak you will notice the superb balance and integrated oak is superb. This is a wine you can put away in your cellar for the next 15 years and enjoy when fully mature. Despite this you can drink it right now, just make sure to decant allow to breathe before you guests arrive. With a silver medal earned at the Fine Wine Asia - Singapore event you will be sure that this wine is not going to be available for ever. Grab a case or two today before you risk losing out on this fine wine.
