2009 Fragoso Merlot

This was a birthday gift my girlfriend received. It’s Argentinian, 13.5% and appears to be from Marks & Spencer.

I got rich berry smells; some grape in there too unsurprisingly!

Slightly tannic in that powdery way, but not enough to make your mouth go funny. A touch of sharpness, a hint of smoke and perhaps some strawberry? Improved quickly once it was open.

Very drinkable. I’ve seen various prices from £4.49 to £6.49 from my internet research, which affects its value for money. I’d certainly drink it again though, but rather at the cheaper end. Other mentions here and here.
