Morandé Pionero Merlot Reserva 2017

The Morandé Pionero Merlot Reserva is made from grapes grown in Chile's Maule Valley wine region. Partially aged in oak for six months this Merlot displays a wonderful aroma of black fruits, fresh herbs and cinnamon spice. Medium-bodied, the palate is fresh and juicy with notes of vanilla, cloves, and chocolate that lead into a long finish with well balanced fine tannins.
