On first impression, this wine reveals an intensely fragrant aroma, rich with fraise du bois, blueberry, rose petals and dried violets. Swirl the glass and you will find mouthwatering layers of licorice, cola and sassafras that continue to unfold, adding even more to its complexity. Crushed fruit teases and broadens the palate with its sun-dried sweetness. The tannins are firm, while the finish is finely tuned, smooth and creamy with a hint of jasmine tea. Meredith Estate is classically designed for long-term aging; the serious collector will be amply rewarded for his patience.
