Veramonte Merlot'02, Casablanca Valley, Chile

A very spicy Merlot with lots of characters.

Technical Data:95% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Casablanca Valley, aged 8 months in French and American, 25% new.

Description:Dark, inky red color. Rich blackberry and cherry aromas spiced with black pepper and tobacco, hints of chocolate, eucalyptus and mint, and a subtle underlay of oak. Rich and full of generous berry flavors with velvety smooth tannins that cool the palate and counterbalance the spiciness of the wine. A hint of earthiness at the end of the palate with a very smoky finish.

Food Pairing & Service:Will pair a wide range of dishes, particularly tomato based dishes, mild cheeses, and red meat.


Suggested Retail Price:$8.99
