Cepas de Familia Gimenez Riili Merlot 2004 Mendoza Argentina
From Lujan de Cuyo in the Upper Mendoza River Region along the Andean foothills, where great temperature variances between night and day make for a Merlot with intense aromas and good acidity.
Medium bodied and ruby colored with warmer copper painted around the rim of the glass. The warm colors are matched well with aromas of red peppers, strawberries and blueberries, while soft tannins hover above flavors of juicy plums, and vanilla... making this very easy to drink. Aerated for over an hour before drinking.
