Bodega del Desierto Merlot 25/5 2009

Bodega del Desierto Merlot 25/5 750ml 2009      
Sku: 1712224

1 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

Bodega del Desierto is a 345 acre estate owned by the sibling team of Armando and Maria Loson. Located in the La Pampa province of the Alto Valle Rio Colorado, Argentina, the wines were named in honor of the local town and in recognition of the 1810 revolution that led to Argentina’s independence from Spain. The strong Patagonian wind and arid desert conditions produce bold red wines and aromatic, delicate whites. Bodega del Desierto produces two tiers of wine Desierto 25 and the premium Desierto Pampa. At harvest, the grapes arrive at the winery within the hour to preserve freshness and acidity. Winemaker Sebastian Cavagnaro works hand in hand with vineyard manager Adrian Barrios and consulting winemaker Paul Hobbs.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 88 points (Oct 2012)
The 2009 25/5 Pampa Merlot offers dark red fruit and espresso on the defined nose. The palate is fleshy and generous, but with decent structure and a satisfying ripe, cedar infused finish that nods towards the Right Bank. This is a commendable take on Merlot. Drink now-2015.
