Errazuriz Estate Merlot, Aconagua Valley, 2009

75cl, 13.5% ABV. Tasted 26/06/2010 (etc), about £8 UK retail. From Errazuriz’s entry level ‘early drinking’ portfolio, a superior blend from new vines. Good crimson colour. Pleasant plumy ‘New World’ Merlot nose with hint of capsicum. A little tannic – needs a tad longer but fresh to drink now, excellent bell peppers and spice on the finish. Great modern Merlot style and freshness. Can’t complain at the price but not sure if it will age much. From 2010. 15.5 20
