Wiens Family Cellars Meritage 2007 Wine Review (NW)



Disclosure: The fine folks at Wiens Family Cellars in Temecula, California provided this complimentary bottle.

Tasting notes:

Interest notes of blackberry, boysenberry, coffee, and cinnamon on the nose

Juicy and youthful on the palate

Black plum, black licorice, and green herbs on the finish

Here's a well crafted wine from Temecula, blended from such traditional Meritage grapes as Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Verdot, Malbec, and Cabernet Franc. This wine has interesting notes on the nose and a ripe, juicy flavor profile. It's a bit "green" on the finish, so perhaps some time in the cellar will mellow things out and provide a more integrated finish.

The wine goes for $39 and appears to be available through the Wiens wine club. Raise a glass!
