2006 Alexander Valley Meritage
Made in 40% new French oak and sourced form the warmer climes of Alexander Valley, this wine is truly built to showcase the best of AV. Still selling the 2004 and 2005 wines, the winery opted to sell us the 2006 production in its entirety.
Dark red color. Brilliant nose reeks of black currant, black cherry, and raspberry fruit with hints of cedar. Smooth, rich, and silky, this wine has exceptional balance, displays outstanding complexity, and shows the deft hand of a winemaker crafting $50 wine including generous fruit and supple texture. It has weight and dimension but never sacrifices its elegance for heft or brawn. An outstanding example of Alexander Valley terroir.
