Well balanced, the wine coats the palate with rich flavors of blueberry and plum accented by subtle red fruit notes of strawberry and Bing cherry.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 85 points - This California red blend has a charming floral and red fruit nose, beguiling and subtle. It tastes of road dusty berries, bitter chocolate, cinnamon and a touch of green pepper. Potent tannins and a mouth-scouring finish. (May 2012)

|Established by Chip Lyeth in 1981, Lyeth was one of the first wineries in California to pursue the unique complexity and composition achieved by the marriage of Cabernet Sauvignon with the other major Bordeaux varieties, now known as the Meritage style. The term "Meritage" (prounouced like "heritage") is a combination of the words "merit" and "heritage". Lyeth became a founding member of the Meritage Association in1988, which created the Meritage concept as a means of identifying blends produced in the Bordeaux style. Today it continues the tradition of blending family and tradition in its wines, winning praise from critics and consumers worldwide.
