Valentin Bianchi Merlot Particular 2006

Member Review by Argovino:

Francisco Martinez and Facundo Pereira offer a wondrous merlot with a complex bouquet of wildflowers. It has a touch of Bordeaux-style blending that offers a succession of new flavors with every flick around the tongue, from gooseberry jam to crushed blackberries, all phased in neatly and elegantly. It’s a model for structuring a wine that’s primarily from one varietal, and a strong argument for more merlot production in Mendoza! (AV 92, http://argovino.com/?p=1251)

Potent and layered, as it begins with sharp, spicy aromas before opening to show deeper black fruit. Saturated plum and blackberry flavors are touched up by a certain saucy spiciness, while the resonating mouthfeel is beefy and rich. This is serious Argentinean Merlot
