Solid great tasting Meritage, I like the Lot 447 more, but 447 was phenomenal.
A really nice Meritage blend. Easily comparable to similar $25+ blends.
A good Meritage
I really enjoyed this Meritage - My husband likes it and he is not a wine drinker, so finding one that he likes is sometimes difficult. Especially in a red, as these tend to be a bit dryer.
This wine evolves after it is opened. Let it aerate for about 30 minutes and it smooths out nicely. I like merlots and if you do you will probably enjoy this. It is a tad dry but not overwhelmingly dry.
Not a Super Meritage
This is one of the weaker Meritage blends from Cameron Hughes. Flavor didn't stand up as in previous blends that I have purchased. I would call it a second drinker.
My new Everyday Red
I've enjoyed all CH Meritage wines, but this has become my "go to" for every day and can go with any meal. Smooth but without an overpowering finish. Hard part is not drinking them all right away!
2011 may have been a challenging vintage, but this wine can stand up to any other vintage! Solid if not spectacular wine!
Great Wine...Great Price
Overall, great wine at a great price, I have alway liked the Meritage and this one does not disappoint. A great summer evening wine.
This is a wine you could drink everyday. You will finish the bottle without knowing it. I just wish it had a little bit more Cab Franc in it.
We could have and often do have this every night.
