Enate Merlot - Merlot 2018

Somontano, Aragon, SpainEnate Merlot - Merlot is produced in Somontano and was the first of several international varieties released by chief winemaker Jesús Artajona. The grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks and aged in new French oak barrels for 15 months, followed by several months of bottle rest before release. 2018 opens with a lifted nose of blackcurrants. and the somewhat volatile notes spill onto the palate with more black fruit, chocolate, and resin. Big and rustic, this needs BBQ ribs in a sweet sauce to smooth it out. A little less of everything would be in order next year.Tasted: 24 August 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
