Great meritage blend, well balanced with 36% merlot 31% Cabernet franc 16% Cabernet Sauvignon 14% petite Verdot and 3% Malbec. Nice little spice at end

Another delightful year of their Meritage style blend. This year it’s made of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petite Verdot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. Lovely nose with complex fruit and spice flavors, mouth watering acidity, and smoothness throughout with just enough tannins for a pop and a pleasant lingering finish.

Return to a well balanced quality wine after an off 2015 vintage. Great floral nose. Smooth bold fruit forward palate with mouthwatering acidity and with mild lingering tannins. Very pleasant uncommon blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot

Very nice but not as strong as the 2014 for the price.

Smooth Meritage blend. Pleasant forward nose. Well balanced and multiple layers of taste. Mild lingering finish. Tried a multiple year flight at the winery and the 2014 was so much smoother than earlier years. Just finished a bottle at home and just as good.
