Wednesday Whine

I did it again, didn’t I?

Better luck next week.

Today is Labor Day, I’m having a little BBQ and a bottle of wine. But before I let the wine breath, let’s have a look.

Merlot

Merlot

Santa Helena Reserve Merlot 2012 from Colchagua, the Central Valley in Chile.

Haven’t tried this one before, but it’s Merlot, what more can one say.

100% Merlot, intense red with violet tones.

Aroma: plums, spices and mint.

Price: R$17, right up my alley (about $6,50).

Today’s temp is ideal for this wine, 19ºC.

You can read about it on Wines of My Life, the blog is in Portuguese, but way down on the side bar there is a translator for English.
