Wine Details

Explodes with bright cherry and acacia flower and quickly opens up to reveal a core of spicy cherry pie, blackberry jam, and toasty oak, with top notes of graphite and wet stone. Aromas of dark chocolate and coffee emerge with a few more minutes of air. Rich, spicy and lush on the palate with deeply textured black fruits and toasty oak notes that end in a coffee chocolate kiss. This wine is simultaneously graceful and extravagant, but simply put, it’s kick-ass juice.

Cam Confidential

Unless you’re involved in wine production, you probably haven’t heard much about Napa Valley’s Oak Knoll District. Located in the “sweet spot” between Carneros and the warmer climes of Napa Valley, Oak Knoll produces elegant Chardonnay, Merlot, and powerfully-structured Cabernets. Well-drained alluvial soils and the picture perfect ’13 vintage conspired to produce simply amazing fruit with splendid lushness. With a liberal helping of new oak, this exceptional blend has developed into a hell of a wine. Considering the expensive oak regimen and careful attention to detail that went into this wine, you’d be hard pressed to find comparable Napa Valley red blends of this quality at any less than $50-$60.

I love my cabs, but I’m in love with this Meritage. Full of flavor, very complex. Definitely opens very well, but letting it breathe will not disappoint.

I just received my held wine orders from the hot summer and the first one we opened was 484 2013 Meritage. I have to say we made an excellent choice! So rich, heavy fruit, some tannins but super balanced. So delicious and if it comes back in stock I am buying more.

Another great wine at a great price. Everyone else here says to give this a bit of time to open up like drink it tomorrow,too This is the kind of wine that keeps me buying Cameron's stuff.I think it's going to be a while before I find any wines better than 2013.

Really good stuff here. Tart with the right amount of sweet. Ripe raspberry with some chocolate and good earth. Big flavor. On my list to buy again for sure.

This Meritage is priced way below it's value. You will love this blend. I enjoy it even more, when I think about what I paid!
