Bodega Chacra, Merlot Mainqué, Patagonia, Argentina 2011

620 miles south of Buenos Aires, Bodega Chacra has been rising in prominence since its inception in 2004. Although better known for its Pinot Noir, it also turns out a handsome Merlot, which boasts a voluptuous, plummy nose of chocolate-dipped blue fruits and spice. To taste it’s fresh and plummy and light on its feet, with crisp, pure and vibrant fruit.
