The 1996 Merlot Reserve Estate Selection is a chunkier, fleshier wine with a dark ruby/plum color, low acidity, surprisingly fine extract, and a chocolate, herb-tinged, berry fruitiness that coats the palate. the wine is husky and lacks definition, but it provides a plump mouthful of red wine.

Walnut Crest Merlot is one of those little gifts of the wine world: a real red wine for just what you'd hoped to pay for it. It's always been a good wine; this vintage seems a little better. Typically Rapel in its smoothness and fine grape flavors of cassis, it also has a light touch of caramelized oak to balance. This is nothing more than a fresh, light and easy Chilean Merlot that does everything right. The sooner you drink it, the more you'll get out of it.

Primary grape flavors and a touch of black, tarry tannin combine in this lightly herbal merlot, made for a good grilled burger.

This Chilean Merlot is light and smooth, with distinctive herbal, berry and cherry aromas and flavors that remain narrowly focused on the finish. Drinkable now, but should be fine through 1996.

A rich, ripe, brawny red from Chile. This shows deep color, aromas of plum and smoke, with plum, light herbal and toast flavors in good balance. There's good concentration here for an unbelievable price; it will be better in 1996.

This Chilean wine is generous, harmonious and lush, with plenty of plum and cassis flavors wrapped around ripe tannins and well-integrated notes of toast and smoke. A bargain at twice the price.
