2016 Eastern Bench Meritage

2016 Eastern Bench Meritage

Appellation
Dry Creek Valley

Previous Vintage: 90 Points - Wine Enthusiast

Winemaker Notes:

The 2016 vintage of our Eastern Bench Meritage highlights the intrinsic characteristics of a specific microregion within the Dry Creek Valley. At first swirl, the wine displays aromas of black cherry, spiced plum and boysenberry syrup. Several more minutes reveal hints of cinnamon, nutmeg and cocoa powder. The palate is full and rich with flavors of crème de cassis, blackberry preserves and black cherry. The tannins are firm, yet supple with a very round and silky texture. The finish lingers with notes of dark chocolate, allspice and a hint of white pepper.
