2015 Meritage - $30

image99

 Meritage, rhymes with Heritage.  This year's signature blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Malbec pack loads of fruit characters! On the nose there is a touch of cedar and spice that really accentuates the cherry and cassis aromas. On the palate we have dense black cherry and currant flavors given by Cabernet and textbook blackberry characters from Merlot. Malbec gives a bit of extra weight, and there is a touch of oak on the finish.  

We hope you find it "Good as Gold."
