2005 Alexander Valley Meritage
Fleshy fruit, smoky oak, and classic styling
This beautifully hued wine leaps out of the glass with aromas of chocolate/mocha, spicy cassis, plum, and dill. Fleshy and ripe on the palate with developed flavors (after all, it is a 2005) of raspberry and smoky oak, this wine is a joy to drink. It's classically styled and super-smooth with exceptional balance, showcasing chocolate, cassis, and light tobacco notes through the finish.
Style: Full, Bold
