Frontera Chile Merlot 2009
Dark and deep red. Rich and deftly balanced yet muscular red, with layers of complex currant, spice, wild berry and plum. Show off a nice touch of vanilla oak and mocha, adding a nice dimension. Though tannic now, this wine should evolve. There’s already some complexity beginning to develop out of its firm, quiet, supple core.
Dark berries and spicy. A hot and tannic.
We got blackberry and plum on the nose with tobacco and a hint of light roast coffee. The mouthfeel was particularly smooth and round. On the palate, cinnamon candies, black cherry, plum, and caramel were detected. The finish was smooth as well, lingering with the taste of berry cola. There was little acidity and soft tannins overall.
I Like it.
taste so good with fruits and breads
This is an excellent wine! Tons of bright floral and fruit flavors without intense sweetness. Very fresh. Close to a white burgundy without the bite.
External Reviews for Frontera Chile Merlot
A plush Merlot, with a nice core of plum flavors and a good herbal edge. Finishes on a slightly sweet note. Drink now through 1999.
Tiefes Rot. Pflaumen, Gewürzen mit Noten nach Schokolade und Vanille. Komplex, weich, samtig, angenehm mit einem lang anhaltenden Abgang.
Our grapes come from the Zonda Valley in the province of San Juan. The vineyards are located at 900 meter above grapes are hand picked, classic cool fermentation followed. Delicate floral notes and white peach, honeysuckle blossom, and layers of lychee conspire which is balanced with good acid and on the palate.

Auge: tiefes in Schwarz übergehendes Purpurrot; Nase: mit Schokolade überzogene Pflaumen, Brombeeren und Johannisbeeren stehen im Vordergrund, gefolgt von süssen Gewürzen wie Nelken, Muskatnuss und Zimt; Gaumen: dieser Wein erfüllt den Gaumen mit seinem ausgesprochenen Körper und samten Tanninen und bietet ein anhaltendes Finale
Violet red in the glass; flavors of herbs, berries and pepper are apparent in the palate. The wine is soft, medium-bodied, rounded and harmonic with a persistent finish. Very smooth, this affordable sipper provides forward fruit and easy drinkability, while a touch of Carménère offers structure and longevity.
