medium bodied,not much fruit,a little spicy
Amazing bang for the buck. Successful capture of carmenere's complexity.
I was very surprised to drink a wine of this quality from Chile! The tannins were big but smooth. Hints of lead pencil and lots of dark fruit. This wine will last a very long time. It was a gift and I had never heard of it. Wow. I sure won't forget it.
Strong red wine, not to buy again
a tickly wine. great with thai food! wonderful with chocolate and good with everything else. it's a cheap thrill, really. not complicated, but simply delicious, perhaps a bit too callow for some.
spicy and full
Buen vino chileno, en mi pais lo venden en unos 25$
External Reviews for Frontera Merlot
I can t say much for the painting by Prince Charles on the label, but what s in the bottle is a powerful, classic, dense ruby/purple-hued Mouton with a full-bodied style, brutal tannin, impressive concentration, and a primordial backwardness that will require 10-15 years of cellaring. Built along the lines of a modern day 1966 or 1988, the 2004 reveals plenty of power and concentration, but the biting tannins will preclude any enjoyable consumption over the next decade. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2035.
"This estate?s harvest began on September 29 and ended on October 15. Unlike the massive, tannic, blockbuster 2003, Mouton?s 2004 is a more linear, streamlined effort fashioned from a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 12% Cabernet
Dark red/purple color, Mouth-Filling fruit, bright, crisp acidity and good tannins that are firm but not harsh. This is a Bordeaux that can be enjoyed now and for the next decade! And at a terrific price, too. As prices in Bordeaux have sky-rocketed, Croix-Mouton is roughly the same price it was three years ago.
Pretty plum and cassis fruit, with lush tannins and a round, smoky finish that lets the fruit linger nicely. Drink now.
Concha y Toro is getting Carmenere right. This affordable red is full bodied, with a fair amount of oak and bacon smothering plum and berry aromas. On the whole itrsquo;s round, juicy and fresh, with lively flavors and good feel.
The dense ruby/purple-hued, fresh, vivacious 2004 Mouton-Rothschild offers hints of new saddle leather, truffles, cassis, and pain grille, zesty acidity, a touch of austerity, and a medium-bodied, str... Robert Parker. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2004 Mouton-Rothschild 750ml
The robe is rich black prune in the center and garnet-vermilion towards the edge. Delicate aromas of forest strawberries, raspberries, cocoa and wildflowers with overtones of honey and incense characterize the subtle nose. The very precise attack is fresh. The evolution is pure and creamy with persistent and enrobed tannins. Flavors of peach pips, almonds and smoky mesquite blend together with vanilla and bright, fresh red and black fruit aromas throughout the exceptionally elegant finish. A remarkably graceful and pure wine.
