Enate Merlot Somontano 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Under the protection of the Pyrenees, or more exactly, in the Somontano, that is, "at the foot of the mountains", in the Northeast area of the province of Huesca you can find the 4.297 hectares which are home to one of Spain's most interesting wineries. This delicious Merlot has a complex, spicy and intense nose which retains eucalyptus, cacao, strawberry jam and smoky notes extracted from the oak. The palate shows firm tannins of good quality. This wine enhances many game dishes, smoked foods and casseroles. Best served between 16-18°C.

Enate has done it again - this elegant wine has leather, spice and jammy aromas. It tastes smoothly tannic and is well-balanced with cassis, currants, plum, leather, tobacco and spice. The finish is medium but the tannins linger a little longer.
