Dry Creek Vineyard Dry Creek Meritage 2017
$70.99 $69.99 price per bottle
This Meritage is a beautifully balanced wine from start to finish. The upfront aromas are nuanced and elegant with classic red cherry, dried floral and bright red fruit tones. After several minutes of airing, a classic Bordeaux-like structure is revealed with more powerful cassis, chocolate and dark berry fruit. The palate is very refined with a nice silky lushness that does not overwhelm the senses. The tannins seem to glide along the mid-palate making the wine structured and focused, but not too fussy. It's delicious yet easy drinking - two things that are of supreme importance with a Meritage wine. The finish is seamless and well integrated. Certainly this is a wine that will age beautifully and develop in the bottle for years to come.
