Central Valley Merlot

Santa Ema

Reserve Maipo Valley Merlot 2018

This 2018 vintage was reminiscent of the first time I had it back in early 2000. Notes of strawberries & a slight chocolate aroma make for a pleasant Chilean wine quite affordable in these inflationary times. I highly recommend it! — a day ago


Napa Valley Merlot 2018

Last night's wine I opened the 2018 Chappellet Napa Valley Merlot.

On the nose there was black cherry, blackberry, plum, chocolate, herbaceous notes, cedar and spice.

On the palate are notes of black cherry, blackberry, black currant, chocolate, french oak, cedar box and an earthiness.

This wine is medium to full bodied with a voluptuous smooth mouthfeel, medium + to high acidity and medium + fine supple tannins that lead into a long juicy dark fruit oak finish. Please stay safe and healthy and enjoy your weekend. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷
