2007 Santa Rita 120 Merlot
Value, value, value is the best way to describe this inexpensive Chilean Merlot. We were having a barbecue and wanted an inexpensive wine to have with some juicy burgers and grilled chicken. Fresh berry flavors popped with a solid dose of herbal and vanilla-oak flavors, making this versatile Merlot a steal for an everyday red wine.
This Merlot is a great choice to have with grilled burgers, your favorite red sauce pizza, spaghetti and meatballs, or even tacos.
I award the 2007 Santa Rita 120 Merlot 3 stars out of 4. It doesn’t get much better than this when it comes to Merlot at this price level.
