(From 2010 Vintage) The 2010 Kirkland Signature Napa Valley Meritage is a full-bodied blend, offering a fragrant raspberry, vanilla, cedar, spice and mocha aroma. Many of these flavors contribute to the taste of this silky, charming wine: Hints of oak, cedar, plum, black pepper and vanilla combine with rich fruit and intriguing layers of dark chocolate. The result is a long and delicious finish.
"Deep purple pigments and aroma of spice box and cedar lead to an initial attack of sweet cherry preserves. Vanilla notes are complimented by nuances of oak. the 2007 meritage is a traditional blend of 59 percent merlot, 38 percent cabernet sauvignon, and 3 percent cabernet franc. the combined elements build to an elegant and polished finish. Drink now until 2014."
