Decant this for an hour and it opens up like a flower. Hey that rhymes! Lots of nice dark fruit from the Petit Verdot. While the Cabernet dominates, The Merlot softens it up a bit. I love meritages and this one did not disappoint.


Winemaker's Notes:

This blend of the five noble Bordeaux varietals is deep, rich and concentrated. Initial aromas of blackberry, plum and black pepper arise from the glass. On the palate, the wine has wonderful texture and length. Cassis and plum mingle with the toasty oak nuances and vanilla characters creating a harmonious blend. The finish is long and sophisticated with the tannin structure playing a pivotal role in the wine's balance and finesse. 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc, 14% Malbec, 6% Petit Verdot
