Review and Rating: *** $ Santa Julia Merlot, 2006, Mendoza, Argentina

The "practically free" Santa Julia Merlot, 2006, is from the Familia Zuccardi winery in Mendoza Argentina.

In the glass it is medium light red. It displays a fruity merlot aroma which is fairly bold, with just a touch of oak.

On the palate, your first experience is a spicy, furry middle, with pleasant acids carrying a fairly lush fruit into your cheeks. A touch of burnt alcohol moves into the finish. Three stars out of five. Good value given the rock-bottom price.
