2016 Meritage Estate, Family Collection, Napa Valley
The 2016 Estate Meritage is a dynamic wine that showcases the broad spectrum of flavors that can be achieved with Bordeaux blends. A fresh and inviting bouquet of ripe plum, candied rose, blackberry, black currant, loamy earth and vanilla waft from the glass. On the palate, flavors of wild strawberry and blackberry accompany fresh notes of dried herbs and bittersweet cocoa. While this wine is already a pure joy today, it retains the textbook structure of the 2016 vintage, and will continue to develop in the cellar for at least the next handful of years. It is a classic rendition of our Estate Meritage.
