Best Chilean wine I"ve had in a long time. very good and easily pared with anything!
Big Me, I fan of the brand - the Merlot is consistently pleasant with it's structure, fine balance and presentation of the fruit on the mix. I love the history of the vineyard and the sincere attention to fine detail from a large wine operation. Me, I find sexy time from timely airing of the wine in my favorite pot, or get great results from a little swirl from an aerator... this is a wine to drink, now. Love it with an earthy meal...
Vino chileno. Monovarietal Merlot. Otro bombazo en cuanto a relación calidad/precio. Compré 3 botellas a un precio ridículo y me duraron 3 días ;-) Suave y con aromas a cacao y a frambuesa. Me gustó mucho.
Muy buen Merlot de Chile!
