Meyney Bordeaux Blend Wine 2011

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

This has concentration and depth with a very gravelly undertow to the dark plum and cassis fruit all framed by a mouthwatering tobacco edge. Shows depth and drive on the finish.-J.M. Wine Spectator.

Always a solid performer the Meyney has a ripe blackberry and bilberry nose with a veneer of creamy new oak. Moderate definition. The palate is full-bodied with dense chewy fruit thick and robust with a tannic finish with ample fruit. I think this will show much better after bottling. Neal Martins Wine Journal.

Served blind at the Southwold 2009 tasting. The Meyney 09 displays some lovely ripe Merlot that lends volume and fruit to the nose: black cherries wild strawberry orange blossom and dried herbs. My fears of it showing over-ripeness appear to have been narrowly avoided. The palate is very well balanced on the entry with fine edgy tannins. There is a citric freshness here with a pleasing edgy finish that is tense and poised. I would have just preferred a little more length but overall this is turning into a very decent Saint Esthphe. Tasted January 2013. Neal Martins Wine Journal.

Dark purple. Aromatic. Sweet start rather flattering. Mouthfilling with a hint of spearmint. Fresh and rather appealing. Jancis Robinson.
