Napa Valley "Meritage", 2014

Produced by Trinitas Cellars

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.
