Clear ruby in the light, looks more like a young pinot. Oak spice and raspberry nose. Medium bodied, with a load of cherries up front, pepper, sweet cranberries, nice tannins, a bit of heat, and a medium-plus finish. Fairly simple, and there might be some RS in there, but I still liked it.
I have enjoyed Meritages that cost less much more than this one. I almost thought I was drinking Merlot and my guess is, it is mostly Merlot, which is not my favorite wine. I ended up mixing it with a Cabernet that was a bit on the oaky, which both added some much needed character while taming the oakiness of the cab. I would not buy this again.
Another great vintage...Decant..Enjoy..
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.
Fruit bomb for sure
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.
Great stuff,wish I'd bought more than one case.
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.
Tasty, Sweet, Light, and Easy to drink
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.
One of our faves
Enjoyed this one - great with a good steak!
Not a great fan of Meritage. This one was good for sipping and matching with steak. I will drink it myself.
Buy it before they run out
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!
