Symmetry Is always a personal favorite, consistently, balance, and elegance always come to mind when I enjoy this wine. In spite of the tough vintage, I think they did a fairly good job to maintain the house style. Never over the top or too jammy; in fact the cool vintage provably produced more earthy and green notes, but still enough red and black fruit to make the wine very enjoyable. Very good.

75/13/5/5/2 Cabernet/Merlot/Cab Franc/Malbec/Petit Verdot. Medium nose shows herbal notes, black fruit, slight fresh tobacco or earth, oak notes. Palate is fresh, round, obvious, black plum, black cassis, dark chocolate, vanilla, very primary, lots of delicious layers, pretty spot on Napa blend at this price point. Acidity medium, tannins medium plus, finish medium plus. Good, but hopefully gets more complexity with time.

Transparent brick red. Cherry, raspberry, and oak spice on the medium intensity nose. On the palate, the oak spice hits along with a light tannins and medium body medium plus acidity. The spice supports red fruit flavours and some earthy undertones (mushroom and hints of juniper). The finish is medium to short with cranberry and baking spices coming across from oak that is just above overdone and with some alcohol burn. A definite new world style Pinot.

Popped and poured; could've used an hour decant time and might have scored higher. Cork crumbled upon opening, but no sediment was present. Probably has a few years left.

Sweet red fruit on the New World nose, with an inviting suggestion of bacon fat. Not as sappy on the palate, with earthy elements and tasty fruit pushing through the obvious oak treatment on the finish. Certainly respectable.

This is bold all around. Earthy, savory nose of black olives, root beer, cinnamon, leather, and a smoky wood influence. Displays good bones, plenty of black fruit flavors, and lots of espresso on the youthful finish.

First attempt with the Tasting Note Assistant....

The wine looks purple colored. The legs are medium. There is no sediment in the bottle. The body is medium/full. The wine has juicy texture. The wine finishes long. The wine has medium acidity.

I recently had the 2010 and I think the 08 is drinking much better. I enjoyed this wine and hopefully I can find this vintage again. I paid $75 for the bottle and I think it was a good buy...Tell me what you think.

Ample fruit, but not fruit juice like so many California pinots. Comparable in body, fruit to a moderate B.C. pinot noir.

Tasted this wine again. Totally different character, much more positive! Refined Pinot nose of dark & pleasantly musky fruit. Mid-palate lingered & finished off brightly. A burst of berries mid-palate.

5/30/2015 - Woodbridge Brad Likes this wine: 86 points

Bit over oaked and ripe with a moderate color this is not a super complex Pinot. Quite drinkable with well balanced acid and tannin, the finish is a bit oak dominated but pleasant. Overall it worked well with braised short ribs.

Decent oak style Chardonnay. Not my favorite style but this is a solid execution. The oak is relatively integrated, both in the nose and the mouth. Ripe with just a touch of alcoholic heat, pineapple grapefruit flavors, the acid is adequate, and the finish pleasant.

This is a very good Meritage which is finally hitting its stride. JL on WS gave it only a 83 in 2008 and said that it should be drunk then through 2012. Well. I'm here to tell you that this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot is drinking great now and has quite a few years left to go. Stylish, and supple.
