Casa Nuestra Meritage 2009

Member Review by Amanda Schuster:

I just want to start out by saying I don't normally go for this style of wine. At. All. But this winery changes all of my perceptions about Napa wines and New World Bordeaux blends. The oak influences are perfectly calibrated, elegant and subtle. The fruit is forward without being overpowering. Complexities keep opening up in the glass. This wine is pure joy and a wonderful surprise. I have another bottle that I'm cellaring, curious to how it will evolve, but anxious to open it!

50% franc, 40% merlot, 10% cab sauv. Wonderful red berry perfume. Pomegranate, cranberry, currant, rose petal, black tea. All lovely flavors on a medium body. Dry. Minty edge and very red. Cherry comes through mid palate to finish. Nice. 88 pts. 5/9/13 at winery

Really glad I opened this now. Shows elegant restraint. Definitely fruity, but not concentrated. The herbaceousness of the Cabs in the blend give it some balance. Very nicely done!
