My wine for Day 8 was a Merlot from Chile’s Valle Central region. This is the only international wine region I’ve been to, so I knew I was in for a treat. Chile was where I learned to love wine, and they have so many good ones for affordable prices!
I don’t drink much Merlot, and I thought this one was relatively soft and fruit forward, despite the bottle description saying it was full bodied. I tasted black cherry and ripe raspberry, with medium tannins. It had 13% ABV, and it was delicious!
