Meridian Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon St. Helena 2010

Member Review by RTDToo:

This was undoubtedly the worst cab that I've ever had and it wasn't corked. It is not even distinctively cab and is barely quaffable as a red. I have always had good wines from Meridian in the past, and I'm hoping that this is indicative of improper handling somewhere along the line. I did purchase it from a reputable vendor, but the proof of the pudding ...

I have one word for this wine..........Yeeeccch ! It was harsh, way overly cherry fruity, very acid tasting, no finish and I had heartburn all night long. Could be my taster but it actually caused me to make a face like sucking on a lemon.

For the money I haven't found a better tasting wine that goes down so smoothly. Lots of flavor and good nose. Without showing the label I pour Meridian Cab to all my friends & guests and they all ask what this wonderful wine is. They can't believe it when shown. Got a lot of people to switch. The snobs can complain all they want but I am a satisfied customer.

oaky. buttery. decent for what it is..$8 good value. Blackberry, fennel and plum aromas. Medium-bodied, this has fresh plum fruit and a finish with soft tannins, tart acidity and a light earthiness

Meridian Cabernet Sauvignon is decisive and knows exactly where it stands. There's no mincing around - from the first taste, its notes of black cherry, currant, vanilla and spice are clean and straight forward. This wine will stand up well to a robust steak dinner for two, can handily go toe-to-toe with a leg of lamb at an Easter or Passover feast, and makes an excellent match to a tri tip roast prepared for a special occasion (for example, 'it's the weekend - let's celebrate!').

Rubinrote Farbe mit violetten Reflexen, kräftiges Kirschenbukett. Am Gaumen, samtig, weicher Auftakt, harmonisch, ausgewogen, gut integrierte Tannine.

The nose opens with black cherry spice and vanilla oak. The palate follows through with flavors of raspberry jam red cherries and black pepper spice. This is a well- balanced and satisfying Cabernet with ripe tannins rounded out by eight months of aging in French and American oak.
