TASTING NOTES

A beautifully earthy aroma is reminiscent of an “old world” Bordeaux blend. This lot select Meritage is made with only the finest quality fruit from the Noble Ridge Estate. Savory herbal notes are highlighted with undertones of sweet tobacco, leather and cassis. The well integrated oak, firm tannins and bright acidity balance harmoniously giving this Meritage the ability to age gracefully for 8-10 years.
