HomeTasting Notes2006 La Stella Allegretto Kathleen Rake October 26, 2009 Tasting Notes 1 Comment This Merlot comes from BC’s Okanagan Valley. I found plum, dark berries and rose petal on the nose. On the palate, it had supple tannins and a level of acidity that worked with flavors of plum, dark berries, black cherries and chocolate to provide a long, pleasing finish. I served La Stella Allegretto with barbequed prime rib and roasted vegetables but would be just as happy partnering it with pasta in a rich tomato sauce. WHO: La Stella WHAT: Merlot WHERE: Canada, BC, Okanagan Valley WHEN: 2006 HOW MUCH: $38 in BC http://nowandzin..com Randy Fuller Sounds delicious! I often think I don’t drink enough Merlot, but I also think that about Cabernet Sauvignon, Viognier, Albarino and Port. So much wine, so little time.
