A soft, elegant wine with loads of berry fruit. Luscious cherry, berry, and spice aromas play against a trace of cedar and herbs. Juicy black cherry, plum, and blackberry flavors layer fruit accents onto chocolate, cassis, and mint notes. Full in the mouth, soft tannins combine with sweet vanilla oak. The finish is smooth, round, and accessible. Excellent depth and balance make this Meritage exceptionally drinkable now.
