Vina Valdivieso Single Vineyard Merlot 2007 (Sagrada Familia, Curico Valley)

Tasted 8/9/11. 14% ABV. About £12 UK retail. Presented by winemaker Brett Jackson to the Chelsea and Fulham Wine Society at My Dining Room, SW6.
This wine is 85% Merlot and 15% Carmenere. Bright red colour, dark fruits, plums and raisins on the nose. Smooth, with good tannins, full bodied but accessible now. Needs another year. Much better than the regular reserva Merlot and worth the extra couple of pounds. From 2012, 17/20
