2011 Meritage, Napa Valley
The nose opens with rich plum notes and just a hint of clove. Lots of red fruit, black cherry, and cola berry follow, and the aroma finishes with a distinct note of dark chocolate. Chocolate covered blueberries are abundant on the palate, black currant and smoke add complexity and depth to this wine. The palate is deep and rich, the wine hits the palate right away and is balanced throughout. The super fine tannins leave your mouth watering for more.
