The Little Penguin Merlot 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Smooth as diving into the sea, this Australian Merlot is a deep, brilliant red. Fleshy ripe strawberries and juicy blueberries entice the palate into a meandering river of black fruits and spice. The palate is soft and stylish with superbly ripe Merlot fruit, leading to a long, sweet finish. Serve it up with hard cheeses, BBQ tri tip or Asian cuisine.

The Little Penguin:
The little penguin wines are appropriate for any occasion. From a party with the whole colony to a quiet night in the burrow, the little penguin enjoys nothing more than socializing and foraging for delicacies.

Absolutely horrible. Like grape juice and rubbing alcohol.

Light and fresh, a refreshing mouthful of plum and blueberry flavors, lingering well. Drink now.

Soft and round, a bit sweet, with ripe currant and berry flavors. Drink now.

This easy-drinking red shows a savory edge to the cherry flavors, ending with polished texture. Drink now.

Smooth and velvety, with pretty blueberry and currant fruit under a smoky veil of fine tannins, finishing with a cedary lift. Drink now.
