GOLD MEDAL – Royal New Zealand Show, International Aromatic Wine Competition 2006

That right there is good enough for me to find this wine appetizing. Then the smells of cut grass..and cat pee. Yes I said cat pee, Gary V uses it and I think it suits it well.

The taste brings to mind tropical fruit as well as some green herb notes. I found it really tasty with my chicken a couple of nights ago. The finish was super clean and fresh and basically gave me the same feeling as sipping on ice cold lemon water on a hot day.

I almost like it more then the mahi…almost.

Score:91/100

$11.00-$18.00

So the gift from my good friend was well worth it. In fact the bottle was gone before the night was done. What was great was that I enjoyed playing gears of war with my friends while I was tasting it.

For a merlot this had a lot of body and intense fruit flavors. I may be be biased because it was a gift but I have to say that this was one of the better wines I have tasted on my wine journey.

Lots of cherry and a bit of dark fruit. The best part of it was the finish that was very very smooth.

Score: 90+/100
