(From 2010 Vintage) TASTING NOTES The 2010 Artist Series Meritage delivers black cherry aromas and spice notes with velvety tannins. 85% of the blend was sourced from our Cold Creek Vineyard, providing power and elegance. Fruit from our Canoe Ridge Estate vineyard rounded out the wine for a layered, complex and harmonious wine.
"Firm and finely focused, with lovely, spicy blueberry and currant flavors at the core, pointing nicely through the fine-grained tannins into a long, elegant finish."-Wine SpectatorThe deep colored Meritage shows abundant aromatics of dried black cherry, currant, ripe blackberry, spicy cedar, cocoa dust and a hint of vanilla. Flavor characteristics are black fruit focused, rich and concentrated and legantly proportioned with sweet oak and supple tannins.
