Wente Merlots are consistently good. Can be drunk by itself or with food. A personal favorite.

Pleasant enough but one dimensional. Not a lot on the nose.

Medium bodied Merlot, similar to a light cab. Great tannins, begged my mouth for protein!

16/20 (88/100) Аромат сливового джема, клубничного варенья, чёрного перца и ванили. Тельное, довольно кислотное с мягкими танинами. Ягодное во вкусе. Хорошо.
