And why should I not form my speculation, And hold up to the sun my little taper? -- Byron, Don Juan, Canto 12, XXI

2009 Marques de Casa Concha merlot
2009 Marques de Casa Concha merlot, Peumo, Chile -- supple, generous, rich deep fruit absent a cabernet's occasional green pepper tang and tough tannins, absent also a carmenere's spice or a shiraz's cola effects. And very completely delicious.
