Product Description

Selected for the Governor's Case in 2012, the 2008 vintage of our Meritage is a beautifully complex wine.  The nose is a complex alchemy of blueberry, plum, cherry, and a hint of fig.  Linden flower and a persistent minerality balances with delicate empyreumatic flavor expressed through notes of toffee and leather.  The attack is supple and opens onto a nice, full mouth-feel.  Flavors of musk and a hint of sandalwood and dark fruits open onto a long, spicy finish.
