With scents of plum compote and violets, this merlot-cabernet blend is dark and inky at the outset. After a day it takes on merlot's more red-fruited inflections. It has the build and concentration for aging, and at this price, it's worth buying a case to enjoy over the course of the next few years.

Meritage wines must be Bordeaux blends; otherwise, they can be all over the map. This is an all-purpose, affordable red blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. Black cherry and olive, smoke and some noticeable alcohol (14.4% is credited) define a sturdy red in wide distribution.

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes were fermented warm (86°F on average) and were pressed off the skins after 4 days, which allowed enough tannin extraction for structure without the astringency. After primary and malolactic fermentation, the wines were racked to barrels (30% new American oak) to age for 18 months. The wines were blended in May 2009 and bottled in August.

Tasting Notes:

The 2007 Genesis Meritage offers aromas of brambly blackberry and fig, with earthy nutmeg spice and vanilla. It’s velvety smooth on the palate, with fresh blueberry, huckleberry and zesty spice wrapped around earth notes and cassis. The finish is long. Pair with prime rib, grilled pork loin, or lamb roast with garlic-herb crust.
