Wine Details

The beautiful perfume suggests the presence of ample mountain fruit – ethereal, with violets and ripe bing cherry married with darker berry fruit and chocolate mocha oak notes. Very complex already with more to come. The amply weighted palate has good tension between the mountain fruit components and the plumper benchland fruit – this is no inky monster but well extracted nevertheless, balanced and complex on the palate with a deliciously supple finish.

Cam Confidential

I am more and more enthusiastic about escaping the confines of “vintage” when it comes to red blends. Today’s release actually came to us “pre-blended” so to speak, already a cuvee of equal parts Napa Valley Cabernet and Merlot with 13% Cab Franc, 9% Malbec, and 7% Petit Verdot rounding out the blend, with 75% 2014 vintage and 25% 2013. The base wine hails from one of Spring Mountain’s legendary estates, with the remainder largely from the heart of Napa Valley (Oakville, Rutherford, St. Helena). With a few pieces of Stagecoach M-Block Cabernet and A-Block Merlot rounding out the final blend, this wine is loaded with the finest pedigree from across Napa Valley, and a screaming deal.

I love blends that have a little substance to them & this was one of them! So sad it’s out of stock!

This is medium body and well-balanced. Very drinkable indeed. A good value.

I've ordered a few of these wonderful MERITAGE blends from CH and this one is by far my "go-to". Perfect right out of the bottle, but if you can wait 45 minutes, it's dreamy!

Disappointed in this wine. In my opinion, very thin and bitter.

Nice big cab nose. Medium tannis on the initial taste. Needs to open up. Not at lot of fruit on the taste. Will try again in 2019.

Great value for a Napa Red. Had some last night at a BYOB. Went well with Filet Mignon. Smooth not over powering.

This red is a great everyday choice. Good balance and full of life. A very good deal.

Nice blend for the money. If it is made of quality stock, I don't care if it is vintage or non-vintage. Still a solid wine.

Aroma is pretty strong tea leaves, light earthiness, some tannins and fruitiness. Flavor is pretty similar, with a bit more raspberry note. Tannins are fairly strong, though the wine is relatively light. Seems a bit out of balance. Gonna decant for a bit and see if it evens out.
