Frontera Merlot Chile 2008

$9 I usually don't drink any foreign wine under $10 (I start wondering if any critters went into it). Even with countries such as Chile and Argentina, I am still concerned about fair trade, but generally, I can except better quality at lower price with Chilean wines. This bottle looked cheap: simple label and green tint bottle, but the wine wasn't as bad as I expected. It had a minty, barnyard, herbaceous fragrance. On the palate, it was spicy, acidity, slightly sweet, and full bodied. It wasn't very complex or elegant, but it was an acceptable wine especially at $9.

I think grilled pork, Berkshire pork wellington, or my low-calorie Boeuf a La Bourguignon.
