Good Fruit, Overpowering Oak & Vanilla
Nose is blackberry, blueberry, and heavy oak, with a hint of green pepper and vanilla. Taste is blueberry, blackberry, and vanilla with moderate tannins and oak. Finish is the same with a light blueberry and vanilla linger. Good fruit hidden under an overpowering layer of oak and vanilla.
Flavorful, great price and excellent with food. Smoked Gouda and ribs bring out the best flavors but anything coming off the grill would be enhanced by this wine.
An amazing wine!
cherries on the nose and tongue, deep and complex. Will buy again. :)
Cherries on the nose cherries on the palate. Ripe black cherries fade to graphite. Pleasant sipper with no off putting qualities. Well balanced blend.
Merry Meritage Day
We loved this wine. Didn't decant it and it still shone through with quality and complexity. Need to pick up some more when I can.
Cam keeps sending winners as far a club reds. This one has a body and fruitiness to challenge the Lot 695 Meritage, but is still a close second.
