Silverwolf Valley Wines- Minkra Merlot 2008
The Vintner is a friend of mine. With that said I will he honest and impartial...Thats how we roll here!
ok, this wine is a nice full bodied Merlot. The Merlot grape is a close cousin to Cabernet Sauvignon in many respects. It is lower in tannins and makes wines that mature faster and are softer in texture. Merlot is often blended with Cabernet Sauvignon in order to soften the blend. At its best, Merlot makes a wine that is dry, rich in flavor and smooth as it finishes in your throat. At its worst, Merlot makes wine that is dry but thin in taste and texture, and not very pleasant to consume. Most of what you will come across are likely to be of pretty good quality.
With that said, if you saw the movie "SideWays" it was a Merlot bashing couple of hours. But make no mistake Merlot is a fine and very drinkable wine and the Silverwolf Valley Wines- Minkra Merlot 2008 is no exception.
This wine Opens with aromas of vegetables, cassis, black cherry, and mocha plus soft tannins which finish broad and long. Well balanced and structured. The Minkra Merlot is produced from vineyards located throughout Minkra’s finest grape growing regions. The winemakers believe that each appellation contributes unique flavor and structure from the area’s soil and climatic conditions.
This is a soft, supple red that finishes with a burst of ripe raspberry fruit flavors. It's the perfect choice for those who prefer a back road to a freeway.
My personal rating is is a 91. WOW is it AWSOME!!
