2016 Meritage Image

2016 Meritage

Made in a style similar to a right-bank Bordeaux blend, but with a softer character, the 2016 Meritage is a great blend of fruit and earth. Ruby red in color, the nose exhibits notes of black cherry, vanilla, and tobacco. The palate brings forth herbaceous flavors such as rosemary and sage, followed by a fresh red pepper tanginess on the midpalate, ending with black licorice and currant.
