Casa Lapostolle Rapel Valley Grand Selection 2013 Merlot (Chile), (Twist off closure) $12.99-$14.99, 87 points, poured centrally opaque grading purple/red toward the clear wine ring and moderately leggy glass bowl.
Aromas of shy mulberry and plum were 'universal', but some soft floral notes were good.
Medium-bodied with fair-plus acidity, mellow underlayment of tannin, and 'universal' flavors of plum, black licorice, and nondescript wine flavors
Finished fair on hints of tobacco, easy spices, herbal notes, and an easy 13% alcohol.
A yeomen's red table wine.
Paired well with our American Flatbread pizzas.
