2013 King Family Vineyards Meritage
Region: Monticello, Central Virginia, Virginia, United States of America
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.
