(2000 Vintage) "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.
