Wine Review: This dark ruby Merlot opens with a cherry bouquet with a hint of vanilla and oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and very easy to drink. The flavor profile is a gentle black cherry with notes of oak and a dash of black pepper. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are tingly and stick around for a while. This very approachable Merlot is a Very Good bargain and would pair very nicely with a big thick grilled burger. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our Dona Paula Estate Merlot 2006 presents a ruby red color with dark hues. On the nose, it displays expressive aromas of mint, herb spice box and black fruits. On the palate, it is sweet, ample and smooth with a velvet structure. It is medium bodied and has a pleasant, lingering finish.
