(2009 Vintage) It starts with rich blackberry and huckleberry aromas with hints of mocha and cedar. Concentrated flavors of carmelized black cherry and black currant lead into an opulent and silky mouthfeel with a lingering finish.
very nice. Christmas quality. deep color. nice smooth start to a quick build, followed by decent finish. no false notes.
This Meritage has some Petit Verdot. Enjoyed very much with Tipper Williams.
