2009 Estate Meritage, Napa Valley
There is no question that this wine is at peak right now! The tannins are fully resolved, the ripe fruit is still shinning bright, and the stunning secondary complexities from the additional bottle time are in harmoniously woven throughout the bouquet, and palate. This is a peak Trinitas Cellars Bordeaux blend, and the distinct flavors of our beloved Meritage Estate Vineyard are now more expressive than ever!
The 2009 vintage in Napa Valley was nearly perfect and closely mirrored the famous 2002 vintage. There were no sustained spells of unseasonable weather from April through September. Grapes from 2009 benefited from the great weather and provided winemakers with the quality they needed to make amazing wines that can stand the test of time.
