2006 Napa Valley Meritage
Lot 85 2006 Napa Valley Meritage
Reddish brick hue. Lifted aromas of cherries, boysenberries, and violets with a bit of cassis lurking in the background. The palate is lush yet structured, highlighting the 1,500-foot elevation of the Atlas Peak vineyard where the Merlot and Cabernet in this blend hail from. The palate is deep with dark cherry and ripe plums and a core of refined tannins, all carried in that ethereal structure born of altitude and hillside fruit. Decant for an hour before drinking.
Style: Full, Bold
