Deep scarlet in color with lovely layered aromas of dark plum, coffee and truffle. Subtle earthy and black currant aromas fill the nose giving terrific complexity. Seamless entry with juicy dark fruit flavors, rich toffee notes and darkly roasted coffee filling the palate. It is elegant in presentation showing firm structure and integrated tannins with a supple rich mouthfeel leading to a long vibrant finish of ripe berries and mocha.

The Tasting PanelThe royal carmine hue makes this wine look all the more stately. First introduced in 1985, this Meritage blend continues to cast a spell and blends all five Bordeaux grape varieties. The mélange consists of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 5% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Cab Franc from lots off the 240-acre Oakville Franciscan Estate vineyard. The wine spent 20 months in oak. The aromas triggered a mountain forest: sage, jasmine, truffle and cherry wood. I salute this particular vintage for its fleshy, satiny texture with a firm structure. Flavors are layered with cinnamon, lavender, blueberry-boysenberry and caramel-mocha coffee.
