This Meritage is a blend of 75% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Malbec. Cherry, toasted spice, tobacco and sweet vanilla notes are followed by a robust mingling of chocolate, raspberry and deep berry flavors on the palate. The finish is soft but the wine is a bit tannic right now—it needs aging. Overall, an impressive wine from a consistently good producer.
