Fairly supple, with moderate body, the wine is framed in soft tannins. Black cherry, blackberry, cassis, smoke, tar and licorice flavors come to mind, ending in a finish of moderate length. Kosher
This light and lemony wine would make a good afternoon sipper, or a tasty match for grilled fish. The spicy, citrus fruit shows good intensity midpalate. Finishes clean, with moderate length and herb notes.
The seemingly late-picked, almost overripe fruit veers from plum and blackberry aromas and flavors into sweet rhubarb and tomato preserves. This Chilean Merlot is flavorful, with light to medium body and a dry finish.
This Chilean wine displays two personalities. The nose offers aromas of ripe peaches and cream, with honey and buttered-toast accents. On the tongue it turns crisp and tart, with citrus and green-apple flavors and fairly sharp acidity. It finishes short and bright.
It’s nice to see an ever-increasing number of serviceable kosher wines like this one being made available to consumers from around the world. That said, this one isn’t much more than adequate. There’s a modest amount of cassis fruit dressed up with earthy chocolate and vaguely minty aromas, but it lacks depth. Still, it’s better than the kosher stuff I remember…
