Food Pairings for Merlot Reserva
External Reviews for Merlot Reserva
/ Well proportioned and solid, with pure cherry and berry characteristics alongside notes of tobacco and sugar beet. A bit tannic and firm, but not overly so; the finish offers mocha and plenty of berry extract.
/ Fleshy and ripely flavored, this is an exceptional Merlot at the price. Full bodied, well balanced, and lightly oaked, wtih a lightly tannic finish. It tastes of black currant, cherry, toast, and spicy oak.
/ Black fruit, bacon and sawdust aromas introduce this fuller-styled, fairly heady Merlot. With ripeness written all over it, there's still plenty of liveliness and punch to the black cherry and blackberry flavors. Finishing notes of pepper and chocolate give it added character.
Smart Buys; Six Merlots for $23 or Less/ Amped-up with quite a bit of toast; there's also plenty of red and black currant and boysenberry fruit and an interesting Cabernet-like graphite edge. Nice focus and solid grip on the finish. From Chile. Drink now through 2005. 15,500 cases made.
Today's Picks - 2/18/05/ Good, straightforward red and dark berry fruit here, though a slightly raisined edge comes in on the finish. Notes of chocolate and toast as well.
Merlot Reserva 2007 - 88 Points, International Wine Cellar/ Deep ruby. Dark berries, cherry and cured meat on the nose. Fleshy and gently sweet, with surprisingly deep dark berry and candied cherry flavors and a late note of licorice. Finishes with persistent sweetness and an echo of dried flowers. For merlot, this is an absolute steal.
