2013 King Family Vineyards Meritage

Estate: King Family Vineyards

Region: Monticello, Central Virginia, Virginia, United States of America


Tasting Note:May 21, 2016

Second red at King Family Vineyards. Mix between Ruby and Crimson red. Slightly dirty cellar that dos not wear off, but depended into some smokiness and a little bacon. Dark cherry undertones. Dark fruits like plums and cherries with some savory undertones on the palate. Moderate tannins (6/10) with a medium body attack that drops to a light bodied finish. Moderate finish, still seems to cut a bit short but best of the Reds here at King Family.

Blend of 49% Merlot, 24% Petit Verdot, 21% Cabernet Franc and 6% Malbec. Aged for 18 months in French oak. 1500 cases produced.
