Deep currant & boysenberry jump right up. As it relaxes I’m getting hints of cedar, oodles of crushed cherry. On the palate it brings a youthful but surprisingly composed, expressive and robust character. Perhaps a symptom of the ‘14 vintage, the tannins are extremely smooth and melt delightfully into h mid-palate of the wine, leading to an elegant, if not a bit demure finish.

Revolutionary reveal that’s in its prime. Beautifully lush and yet defined with a wonderful precision of each varietal (39% Cabernet Franc, 26% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon, and a healthy 18% of Petit Verdot) gracefully crossing the palate- the 2007 Jefferson Vineyards Meritage is one of my favorite Virginia wines of all time. — 4 months ago
