Community Tasting Note

  • bcahlbrandt Likes this wine: 92 points

    July 17, 2021 - Really happy with this. I always approach a Meritage with trepidation because Bordeaux is my wine of choice, and CA rarely lives up. While this still doesn't hit the complexity I love about Bordeaux, it was much more elegant that typical blends in the same price range. Dark fruit, dark chocolate, cedar and vanilla, with a mild herbaceous note on the back end. The fruit was restrained just enough to let some of the other flavors shine.
