Dark and herbal, with solid fruit and texture. This is Merlot from Chile as it should be, meaning it is meaty, ripe, naturally herbal and comfortable. Not a fancy wine, but one with honest cherry, plum, herb and pepper flavors. A little bumpy, hot and oaky, but convincing as a whole. Imported by Baystate Wine Co.
