This wine is the unequivocal standout of the Meinert portfolio. From nose to palate, just-crushed dried herbs, sprinkles of light brown sugar, and thick, lush plum, blueberry and blackberry fruit serenade the senses. The oaking is interlaced at every step with the fresh fruit. Trust your heart and take it home to meet the parents.
The clean, juicy acidity provides a consistent backdrop to the thinned flavors of dark earth, plum and dark chocolate. Throughout, and especially on the finish, is an oaky overlay with a hint of herbs.
