Merlot 2020, Black River, Rio Negro, Patagonia, Humberto Canale, Argentina red, $13.20, SAQ # 14307361. I must admit that I am more of a merlot fan than a cabernet fan. I just love the merlot mouthfeel, so lusciously textured. Merlot got its bad rep due to way too much boring wine produced the world over, but this is not one of those wines. This is “proper” merlot, with its mix of plum and dark berries, a suave mid-palate and a finish that’s elegant with just a touch of tannin. Simple, yes, but very well done. Grape variety: merlot. Residual sugar: 1.9 g/L. Serve at: 16 C. Drink now. Food pairing ideas: apéritif, grilled chicken or pork with herbs, wild mushroom ragout.
