Mission Hill Family Estate Select Lot Collection Merlot 2006
Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: May 22, March 7, January 4 and December 16.
Natalie's tasting note, score, food pairings and recipes for this wine
Reviewed October 31, 2012 by Natalie MacLean
Opinions about wine differ greatly as the experience is subjective. You may find it helpful to compare this critical evaluation of the wine with mine as well as your own:
|The 2006 SLC Merlot has an elegance and polish like no other vintage. Sweet, ripe fruits dominate the nose, with aromas of plum, blueberry and black raspberry. Further complexity emerges in the form of spice notes, violets, vanilla and chocolate ganache. |
The palate is soft and inviting with very fine grained tannins and a long, persistent finish.
