Hestia Cellars 2005 Meritage Red Wine Red (Columbia Valley (WA))

This Meritage red blend is 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cabernet Franc and 12% Malbec. The fruit flavors are pure and focused, and the wine opens beautifully with tangy boysenberry, plum and wild cherry. The acids carry it aloft, and the tannins, just slightly hinting at green tea, are polished and firm. Though it finishes with some herbal flavors, it is satisfying throughout. Paul Gregutt
