Andeluna Reserve Merlot 2006, a very nice Tupungato´s red
Andeluna Merlot Reserve 2006, By Andeluna Cellars, USD 20
A merlot from Tupungato Valley, part of Uco Valley, Mendoza.
Nice red cherries and black plum mix with a little overt acidity which departs a bit from the usual friendly sweetness I´m used to by ARG´s malbec. This is not a drawback but a educated taste I´m used to. Good balance and attractiveness all through the palate with nice aftertaste. Soft even expressive oak on sweet chocolate. A 90 point merlot and a good value. It probably will get better in a couple of years with more terciary and softer notes.
