The 2006 Meritage displays classic Bordeaux-style characters of bright cherry, chocolate, and vanilla, perfumed with a wonderful dried floral component. On the palate, the wine is rich and seamless with excellent depth and complexity. Subtle nuances of blueberry and spicy black pepper provide weight and dimension. The finish is elegant and sophisticated with excellent tannin and structure - a wine that lingers on the palate. - Winery

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Spectator Review Rated 92 Sleek, tight and focused, harmonious, well-proportioned and complex, offering layers of ripe plum, black cherry, currant, black licorice, mineral and spice. Ends with supple tannins and a flow of dark berry flavors. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2019. Wine Enthusiast Review Rated 92 Shows the edgy tannins that Dry Creek red wines invariably display, with a sandpapery texture. That makes the wine, which is a Bordeaux blend of five varieties, a little rustic. But the dryness and bite are a nice alternative to the riper, softer Napa style, and more versatile at the table. Good now, and should slowly develop in the bottle for years. Wine Tasting Notes The Mariner exudes the qualities of a ?ne Bordeaux. At first swirl, this wine presents a beautiful mix of bright cherry, chocolate, and cassis elements framed by subtle notes of vanilla bean and coffee. On the palate, this classic blend comes together with ?ne tannins that support the dense fruit and structure of this full bodied wine. With more airing, hints of rose petal and earthy nuances provide balance, grace, and finesse. A long and memorable finish proves that this delicious young wine will age for at least a decade or more.
