Panilonco Chief of Lions Reserve Merlot Malbec D.O. Colchagua Valley Chile 2009

Member Review by Pyrifera:

Dark berry and oak aromas with some overlying mint. Tart in the mouth with some mild berry flavors. Decent but one-dimensional.

    bit harsh, but subtlety balanced. High dark fruit. Acidity high. A beverage that's drinkable.

    It was above average. I think I'll probably get this wine again.

    I would give it 3 glasses based on taste—it was soft, supple and fruit-forward, not complex but definitely drinkable. The extra glass I gave for the price—$3.99 at Trader Joe's. A great wine value!!!

    Very smooth and tasty with a nice after taste. Purchased two bottles at Trader Joe's for $4.99 per bottle and really liked it, but they were all out when I came back to purchase some more a couple of weeks later.....bummer!

    Very smooth, not overbearing. No bitterness, slight bite of alcohol. Nicely done. Wife got it on sale for $2.99.
