Marilyn Wines Meritage 2010
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Rich garnet-ruby hues. In the nose, one is attracted by smells of dark cherries, floral notes, toffee, and a pleasing smoky earthiness and bright bramble character. The lush round entry on the palate leads to a well structured, full mouthfeel as one would expect in a top Bordeaux blend. Added notes of currants with a hint of spice make this Meritage a wine that is immediately enjoyable but that will reward the patient consumer with the added complexity that will be gained with 5 to 10 years of aging. Meritage blends are some of the most complex and layered wine available. Try pairing it with grilled beef, braised short ribs, or even a mushroom pizza.
