Lyeth L de Lyeth Meritage 2008

Member Review by Matt W:

Tastes like a nice Bordeaux. Smoky, earth and leather on the nose follows through to the palette and is backed by perfect tannins and a peppery finish. Well balanced and a lingering finish. Thrilled to have this for $14 from my local wine store.

Not bad. A little earthy and dry on the finish. Not as smooth or as fruit forward as I like my Meritage blends. But not a bad wine.
