2017 Meritage

2017 Meritage "Alluvial Gap"

Appellation
Dry Creek Valley

Previous Vintage: 93 Points - James Suckling

Winemaker Notes:

The 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 black currant, black cherry, and plum. Several more minutes reveal hints of cardamom, white pepper, and vanilla. The palate is full and rich with flavors of boysenberry, black cherry, fine leather, and dried herbs. The tannins are firm yet supple, with a very round and silky texture and the finish lingers with notes of dark chocolate, wild sage, and hints of spice.
