2012 Lyeth Meritage

Estate: Lyeth Estate

Region: Sonoma County, California, United States of America


Tasting Note:February 7, 2016

Lyeth is a winery out in Sonoma County that specializes in Meritage wines. Pure ruby red and bright foam. Slightly savory and earthy to start on the nose with a little bit of black cherries. Really enjoyed the nose on this one. Light overall mouthfeel with moderate tannins (5/10) and crisp light to medium body. Soft black cherries throughout that changes to cassis as it breathes. Short to moderate finish with slight acidity that dies off quickly. Overall a great wine for under $15.00, would use this as a great refreshing, lighter, everyday drinker. We really want to try to find their other wines to give them a shot.

This is a Bordeaux blend of 35% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Cabernet Franc, 3% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot.
