Van Westen - Vivre la Vie - 2012 100% Merlot
Happy Canada Day! Going local for this one :)
I'm a lover of all things Van Westen. Rob makes great wine.
I've recently discovered that I love Merlot's. The simple, full flavoured, dryness and tannins. There are berries, plums and greens with some depth that keeps it right on the mouth.
I'm a big fan of their Voluptuous as well. 67% Merlot and 33% Cab Franc. So I thought I would have them both side by side. The Voluptuous is one of my first pours. I share this with friends and continuously get a wow...
But when I want a glass of wine, and I don't want to share, I pull this one out.
It's an amazing amount of delicious flavours wrapped up in a perfect delicate mix.
Buy this one and don't share. :)
