2010 Meritage, Napa Valley, Red Blend

Revisiting this wine with ten years of cellar time affirms why it received a double gold from the SF Wine Chronicle. It is fabulous! Captivating aromatics of black cherry, ripe plum, dark chocolate, fresh bay leaf, and vanilla bean waft from the glass. The cellar time really shows itself through the wines texture. The soft and round palate is a harmonious blend of powerful fruit and savory flavors. Ripe black cherry, pipe tobacco, clove, and vanilla flavors are perfectly melded together. The well integrated tannins show themselves on the persistent finish, which carries on and on. This is complex, decidedly delicious, and exactly what you'd expect from a great Napa blend.

2014 Meritage, Napa Valley, Red Blend

The 2014 Meritage simmers from the glass with a harmonious bouquet of mulberry, black cherry, clove, and toasted graham cracker. The mouthwatering palate fans out for almost a minute with a kaleidoscope of rich blackberry, plum, blueberry, and raspberry that is lifted by refreshing acidity. The ripe berry medley trails off into a savory finish of tobacco and black licorice. This is a shining example of the range of flavors that can be achieved in a blend. It checks all the boxes, and everyone will find it hard to resist. 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Malbec, 19% Merlot,15% Cabernet Franc, 12% Petit Verdot

2015 Meritage, Napa Valley, Red Blend

This rich and approachable rendition of Meritage puts the overt characteristics of the 2015 vintage on full display. It opens with a sweet bouquet of plum, blueberry, graphite, and cedar. The silky palate gushes with flavors of ripe blueberry and black currant that seamlessly transition into a savory finish of toasted vanilla graham cracker. Despite its decadence, this wine stays fresh, and is incredibly easy to drink. This is ready to enjoy now! 33% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Cabernet Franc, 13% Malbec, 9% Petit Verdot 2015
