Our 2011 Meritage presents elegant aromas of black currant, cassis and ripe plum, complemented by intriguing earthy notes and cedar. The color is deep ruby red, dense, and reflects the intensity of this vintage, the vineyard, and the careful selection of our finest lots. On the palate the wine shows exceptional depth of flavor with firm but velvety tannins. The
classic blend of four noble grapes produces a wine of finesse and character featuring our estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petite Verdot.
"Inky ruby. Smoky cherry and blackberry on the fragrant nose, with complicating notes of licorice, vanilla and espresso. Sweet, penetrating dark berry flavors show noteworthy depth, with lively acidity giving the wine good cut. Finishes sweet and persistent, with a repeating note of vanilla."
