Reviews and Ratings
|Courtney Flood rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Chewy deep red with wild berry flavours (mulberry, blueberry, cherry); bitter cocoa and black pepper. This bold wine would be a little kinder with a couple years of aging, or a few hours of decanting.
Pair with: grilled meats in sweet BBQ sauce to match the boldness of the wine, but offset a little of the dryness. Smokey baked beans and molasses.
|Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
The nose offers ripe cherry, blackberry, spice, cedar and a hint of floral note. The palate brings out spicy black fruit with some cedar and mocha. The finish is long with some moderately soft tannins.
|Bill Wright Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
A little closed with spice being the dominant aroma. The spice follows through mixed with subtle tastes of fruit. Medium fruit finish.
Tasted April 3/16
|Carola Price rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Washington state continues to impress with its offerings. While I think the stars of the state are Syrah and Riesling this Meritage is pretty tasty. On the nose a bit of plum jam and orange peel while in the mouth there was lots of non-descript black fruit and some white pepper with orange zest again. Heavy bodied with a long finish this wine still needs time to develop and may soften a bit if decanted twice. Pair with big bold meats and stews perhaps using the wine for the gravy will marry your meal nicely.
Hold 2 to 6 years
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
This Bordeaux blend consists of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Aromas are a bit tight at first, but there is some plum, red currant, and some cedar. Medium bodied, fruit is bright on the palate, medium + acid. Tannins are present but not overwhelming. Try with braised or roasted beef.

Needs time to breathe…
Presentation: Easy to read, there’s a softness to it
Appearance: Medium ruby red
Nose: Grass, caramel
Taste: Sour berries, tannic, leather
Finish: Strong tannins
Overall impression: This one needs time to mellow out. It’s a little one dimensional.
