Montes Classic Series Merlot 2009
This Chilean red, meant to be drunk young, is the entry level wine from a serious grower, as distinguished from the mass providers of plonk, of whom there are several in that country. It' a nicely rounded mix of dark berry and spicy pepper flavors, with only a hint, if that, of the unpleasant aftertaste of many of the cheaper Merlots. $7.99, a decent value.
