The Little Penguin Merlot 2015

Member Review by fifilafou:

Wonderful dark ripe fruit hints at sweetness. Nice balance, soft finish, delicious on it's own. Good from the first pour, slightly better the second day.

The Little Penguin:
The little penguin wines are appropriate for any occasion. From a party with the whole colony to a quiet night in the burrow, the little penguin enjoys nothing more than socializing and foraging for delicacies.

For the price, this is a great merlot. I do agree with other reviews that the 2008 is a bit better than the 2009.

For the price, Little Penguin makes a very respectable merlot. The 2008 vintage is a little better than the 2009, to the point that I would suggest the buy the 2008 if you can find it. As always, the serving temperature and proper aeration is important.

Surprisingly structured for the economic price. One can sense a variety of layers to be experienced, as with all others, good aeration is what can set this merlot apart from the ordinarily cheap. A well-structured merlot, it is lacking in depth and complexity. A good rtw, seemingly thin, that lives up to its very low but pleasing expectations. You get what you pay for, and in this instance perhaps we "get" a little more.

Ripe strawberry and blueberry and a river of black fruits and spice. The palate is soft and stylish with wonderfully ripe sweet fruit.

Bright red color. Fleshy ripe strawberries and juicy blueberries entice the palate into a meandering river of black fruits and spice. The palate is soft and stylish with wonderfully ripe seet fruit, leading to a full-flavored sweet persistent finish.Will complement hard cheeses, BBQ tri-tip and Asian cuisine. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **

Soft and round, a bit sweet, with ripe currant and berry flavors. Drink now.

Light and fresh, a refreshing mouthful of plum and blueberry flavors, lingering well. Drink now.

This easy-drinking red shows a savory edge to the cherry flavors, ending with polished texture. Drink now.

Smooth and velvety, with pretty blueberry and currant fruit under a smoky veil of fine tannins, finishing with a cedary lift. Drink now.
