Gato Negro Merlot 2008

by Boris at on January 20, 2010

Gato Negro MerlotPrice: around $5

Color: Deep red/violet

Nose: Strawberries and blackberries

Taste: Medium bodied and inky. Tasty and balanced

Summary: This wine is best as an accompaniment to food. It is best served with a substantial meal, eg. pastas, meat and potato dishes. Let’s just say it is not a scene stealer and it likes to leave the spotlight open for the food 😉

A very drinkable Chilean merlot at a very reasonable price.

I was just in Sir Lanka and actually saw the 2011 vintage of this wine for sale! Caught me off guard as I didn’t think I’d find any wine there at all 🙂
