Firm, ripe, intense and concentrated, full-bodied and structured, with a complex mix of dark berry fruit, red and black licorice, cedar and spice, ending with a pleasant loamy earthiness. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.
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.
