Allure Meritage 2007 - Half Bottle
GOLD MEDAL WINNER at the 2011 SF Chronicle Wine Competition. Meritage Allure is a seamless blend of the Nobel 5 Bordeaux varietals, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc but with not one varietal dominating. In the glass a lovely blackberry nose with alluring hints of plum and blackcurrant character.
The palate offers a fresh although gently textured wine covering the ripe tannins that persist to the end very nicely with a depth, substance and richness.
One can feel this wine unfolding, revealing layer upon layer of delicate flavor, then the surprise, taken into the mouth together with a complex, multi flavored food like lasagna, the whole experience sings.
