Last Nights Wine
2004 Blenheim Meritage

Nose: Berry, Earthiness

Taste: Initially Black Raspberry and Cassis were faint with flavors of chocolate, leather and bell pepper being predominant but after about 30 minutes the fruit flavors came to life and really made for a great wine.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, Medium Bodied

Finish: Medium Length

We have found Blenheim Wines to very good. Visiting Blenheim is always fun as it is by appointment only and both times we have been it was conducted by the winemaker Brad. His pours are generous and the so is the conversation. Thier winery is beautifully constructed out of almost 100% "found" wood, and is a gravity flow design creating as little impact as possible on the grapes/must during initial processing. This wine was again excellent and I can't wait to enjoy the other bottle that we have.
(A) $25.00
