Meritage 2014

Meritage 2014

A complex nose of bright red fruit, violets, and dried rose petals is laced with delicate notes of saffron, vanilla, and spice. The palate is bright and youthful, with a focused structure and layered flavors of cherry and raspberry alongside oak spice and tar. The tannic structure and acidity follow through the finish. Aged for 18 months in French oak. Drink now through 2024.
