    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep garnet, this Merlot has black cherry and earthy notes. Medium bodied with excellent balance and structure, it displays fresh herb, cherry, and tobacco leaf flavors. This Merlot is a perfect accompaniment for pasta, roasted turkey, chicken and pork loin. It's especially good with creamy cheeses, like Brie and Camembert.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The red wines begin with the 2008 Merlot, a silky, elegant wine with lovely cherry flavors and aromas, excellent balance and a pure finish. If all value-priced Merlots were this satisfying, its prestige never would have diminished.

    If there is anyone delivering more bang-for-the buck than Arturo Cousino and his namesake winery Cousino-Macul, I’d like to know about it. One of the first wineries from Chile to make a break-through in the USA market, over the years Cousino has continued to fine-tune his portfolio and the wines are better today than they have ever been.
