The 2014 Estate Meritage Red is a 100% estate blend consisting of Cabernet Sauvignon (52%), Merlot (25%) and small amounts of Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. It's deep and concentrated in color mirroring the intense black fruit aromatics on the nose. The palate is delicate and smooth with flavors of blackberry, plum, and violet that are complemented by clove, and a hint of smoky vanilla. The estate fruit shines on the finish in this smooth and supple blend for a balanced and more complex Napa wine.

Wine AdvocateTheir 2014 Proprietary Red Meritage is a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot, and the rest Malbec and Cabernet Franc. It is another striking value among the stratospherically priced wines of Napa. More floral than its counterpart, with more uplifted aromatics, but similar weight and richness, this full-bodied, pure, ripe, delicious and complex wine has attractive aromatics, medium to full body and velvety tannins. Drink it over the next 10-12 years. Drink Date: 2016-2028.
