Red Meritage

2012

This Grand Reserve Red Meritage is a Bordeaux-style blend that produces aromas of black cherry, espresso, mulberry and light cedar which continue on the palate. The aromas are supported by firm tannins and a round finish that echoes with dark chocolate.

89-91+ points, Robert M. Parker Jr., Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, Dec 2014 
"Moving toward their top-of-the-line proprietary reds, Kendall-Jackson’s 2012 Meritage Grand Reserve is 30.7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28.1% Merlot, 13.9% Cabernet Franc, 13.7% Malbec and 13.6% Petit Verdot, all coming from Sonoma and primarily aged in French oak (28% was new). Licorice, graphite, mulberry and black cherry fruit jump from the glass of this medium-bodied, nicely concentrated wine with sweet tannin and toasty oak in the background."
