Had it with fellows at a dinner. On the nose earthy notes (more of the malbec on the wine, 25 percent iirc) Fruits on the dryer side. Good balance with the meat. medium finish. 90s

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.

Cork disintegrated half way out. Some lightening in color, but not as much as I would have expected. Soft entry. Gentle, dark fruits. Overall gestalt was a weird likeness to a vintage port - sort of raisiny. Really nice texture. Past prime, but enjoyable. 87

Nice improvement over the first bottle, which was flawed. Symmetry always shines and apparently even in difficult years.

Flawed bottle. Even taking the Brett out of the equation, still seems very light and not complex at all. Bought at Sam's Club for $24. Maybe they knew something that I didn't. Ok, 2 hours later, the Brett has dissipated, but the lack of complexity has not.

The nose was a bit of a disappointment, but the wine made up for it in taste. The nose was a bit underwhelming with light notes of cherry, vanilla and almond. Tasting was a another story. The cherry came to the front with almond, cassis and some fig also. Incredibly smooth with tame tannins. This can hold at least 10 more years.

Refer to my lengthier note from last year for details. Another year has only improved this wine. At ten years to the vintage it is still going strong. Still excellent dark fruit with cedar and spice and good oak integration. If only I had more in the cellar to open next year!

We drank this with John's cold smoked salmon and a green salad with Kirsten's berry dressing. Excellent combination! It was light enough to have with fish, smooth. Bottle says toasty vanilla from French oak aging, rose petal and red cherry flavors. (Can't remember)
