2016 Meritage

2016 Meritage

Appellation
Dry Creek Valley

Winemaker Notes:

The 2016 vintage is beautifully balanced from start to finish. Aromas of black cherry, ripe blackberry and cedar are evident at first swirl. After several minutes of airing, the wine opens up and reveals nuanced spices of white and black pepper. On the palate, the wine is delicious with a silky lushness and tannins that are elegant. Rich flavors of black currant, spiced plum and black cherry come forward with notes of allspice and leather. The finish is seamless and well integrated. This wine will age beautifully and develop in the bottle for years to come. This is a classically-styled Meritage that showcases just how well the Bordeaux varietals grow in Dry Creek Valley.
