Lyeth L de Lyeth Meritage 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The award-winning Lyeth Red Meritage most often consists of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The inviting prelude leads to fully-developed flavors that linger on the palate in a long, silky finish. Scents of spice and vanilla are well-balanced against the assertive fruit characters.

Not a bad wine but this one just lacks any excitement.

Showing age on the nose. Truffle notes, forest floor, some cola, dried flowers, leaves and red fruits. On the palate, retains fair structure. Dusty red berry fruit with hints of pepper. Relaxed tannin and nicely balanced acid. Starting to weaken a bit though, short finish. Still tasty, but a tad watered down, so drink now. 84 pts

What's New in Booze - 9.2 out of 10 ripe red and black berry aromas and flavors, some black pepper, a hint of licorice and clove spice, firm tannins, and ample acidity. With the initial harshness replaced by a smooth texture and fairly long, ripe finish that might end up just a touch too hot. Enjoy this wine with a fatty ribeye, porterhouse or assortment of strong cheeses. Drink now through 2015.
