2005 Napa Valley Meritage
Lot 48 Meritage is an expression of what is best in Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Malbec. Each varietal's contribution weaves a tapestry of flavors centered on a concentrated core of currant, black cherry, blackberry, and sweet cigar smoke. The wine is opulent in the mouth, finishing within a framework of toasty French oak, dark chocolate, and freshly roasted coffee. The tannins are well integrated, and the wine will grow more succulent with each minute in the glass.
