This quaffable Merlot sports bell pepper, plum and tobacco notes. Finishes on a slightly charry note.
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 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.
Just an amazing value. Nice plummy fruit balanced against a light touch of oak. The tannins are ripe and ready.
The 1997 Merlot is somewhat herbaceous, but ripe and soft, with low acidity, and a round, flat attack. Nevertheless, there is good fruit, and plenty of glycerin in an easy-going, understated style.
A soft, fruity Merlot with plum and black cherry flavors. Full and lush on the palate, this Merlot would perfectly suit spicy barbecue wings or ribs. Walnut Crest's quality soars above many wines in this price category and is a great everyday choice.
Walnut Crest Merlot from Emilian Vineyards is a soft, fruity, delicious red wine. Best served with pasta, chicken and mild cheeses.
