A refined nose with scents of cherry jam, wheat fields, clove, and pepper leads into a bright, firmly structured wine full of fresh strawberry, raspberry, and cassis fruit flavors and a balanced
level of acidity. This wine is rich, generous, and seamless. Elegant, sweet tannins linger on a long and complex finish.
Blend: 54% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Franc, 7% Petit Verdot, 4% Malbec
"Just as good, with a deep, layered profile of black currants, cherry, licorice, herb and chocolate, the 2009 Uriah (54% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Franc, 7% Petit Verdot and 4% Malbec) spent 18 months in 55% new French oak before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. Medium to full-bodied, balanced, rich and with good acidity, it’s a silky, elegant 2009 that’s a joy to drink."
The Wine Advocate
"Focused, ripe, deftly balanced and generous with its dark berry and mint flavors, lingering enticingly against light prickles of tannins on the finish. Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Drink now through 2016."
