Our inaugural vintage of Lytton Springs Meritage highlights the intrinsic characteristics of a specific microregion within the southeastern area of Dry Creek Valley. This Meritage blend is led by Cabernet Sauvignon, with three additional Bordeaux varietals to add complexity and depth. At first swirl, the wine displays powerful aromas of blackberry, raspberry and cedar. Several more minutes reveal sweet and spicy hints of blackberry pie and pipe tobacco. The palate is full and rich with flavors of black cherry, fresh blackberry, and toasted almond. The tannins are firm, yet supple with a very round and silky texture. The finish lingers with notes of dark chocolate, wild sage and hints of spice.
