This is a blend of cabernet sauvignon (75 percent) and petit verdot (25 percent) from winemaker Mitch Cosentino. Back in the day it was Cosentino who bottled Napa Valley’s very first Meritage wine. Leather and black fruit aromas fill the nose. The palate is stuffed with cherries of all sorts, blackberry and pepper spice. The exceedingly long finish shows off minerals, earth and a light dusting of cocoa. This is a fantastic Bordeaux-informed blend from one of California’s masters.
