Really impressed with this wine! 769 is a finely crafted meritage and you can taste all the details. Well done!!
Very nice blend
On the pour you get medium to deep ruby with a red rim and long legs. On the nose you get powerful aromas of currants, black cherry, crushed gravel and cedar. On the palate there was a little more acidity than I was expecting based on the blend. The tannins are very present but work well with the acidity. Lot 769 has a full body and dry taste. The fruit wants to come out but it is to young right now to allow that to happen. I have a slight disagreement with Cam's review in that I found the finish to be delightful in the mid-palate that quit a little short of my expectation.
I did have a Lot 784 that I was finishing up from the day before. I still think Lot 784 is slightly better than this offering. I also think Lot 695 is a great wine as well. Order them all and compare for yourself. Your won't be disappointed
My fave of all the recent meritages
Came in my club sampler. Love this wine! Ordered a case and may go back for more.
My favorite of all the recent meritage releases. High end components for sure. Love the cab / cab franc flavor combo.
A bold wine with a bit of tannin and structure so has some aging potential. But why wait!
Favorite Meritage so far!
Really enjoyed this after a 2 hr decant. Smooth and complex... will only get better with age
