Viña Tarapacá Merlot Casablanca Valley Reserva 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2001 Vina Tondonia Reserva is bridled with a lovely nose of decayed red fruit, fireside hearth, a touch of mulberry and small red cherry. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, crisp red fruits (wild strawberry and cranberry) with a sharp, vibrant, tense, tannic finish that has immense precision. There is a slight saline note lingering in the mouth after the wine has (regretfully) departed...95" WA 08/12 "75% tempranillo, 15% garnacha and 5% each of graciano and mazuelo) Bright medium red. Expansive bouquet of musky red and dark berries, medicinal cherry, rose oil and Asian spices. Juicy raspberry and rose pastille flavors are framed by silky tannins and given a boost by zesty minerality. Packs a solid punch but comes off almost weightless. The tannins fade into the sweet fruit on the finish, which is strikingly pure and very persistent. Lovely right now....92" IWC 09/10 "This polished red delivers mature flavors of dried cherry, forest floor, tobacco and vanilla on a graceful frame. Fresh and lively...90" WS 08/10

A bit tired but still nice. Needed about an hour to regain some of it's stuffing. Light, spicy with good background of dark fruits. Hurry up and drink the last one! 3.5/5 [NR]

A deep ruby-red with a brick-red rim. The aromas of bonfire and dried plum spread along the palate where the hints of stewed fruit take over. In the mouth it is lively and leaves a memory of raisins which sweetens its spicy pass and show its harmony with noble woods.
