Walnut Crest Merlot Valle Rapel Emiliana 2009

Member Review by dkmrd5:

Ruby red in the glass. Nice fruit on the nose, more oak and tannins on the tonque. Lasting finish. Not bad for $6 but also not the best merlot I've ever had.

Just an amazing value. Nice plummy fruit balanced against a light touch of oak. The tannins are ripe and ready.

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.

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.

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.

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

This quaffable Merlot sports bell pepper, plum and tobacco notes. Finishes on a slightly charry note.

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.
