Walnut Crest Merlot Valle Rapel Emiliana 2007
External Reviews for Walnut Crest Merlot Valle Rapel Emiliana
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.
A soft red with cherry and eucalyptus scents, this gentle, fruity wine is ready for pork chops off the grill.
A fresh, very fruity Merlot, with lots of cherry and raspberry character, light tannins and a smooth texture. Just right for tonight.
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.
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.
Primary grape flavors and a touch of black, tarry tannin combine in this lightly herbal merlot, made for a good grilled burger.
