Top 10 wines in the US press2nd May, 2013 by Andy Young
Robert Mondavi Private Selection Meritage Central Coast 2011
Sandra Silfven, writing in the Detroit News, recommends this red wine, writing that one of the most amazing things about this blend is “the price”. She added: “I can’t remember tasting the Meritage from this line before – it’s dry, balanced, complex and delicious, and such a bargain.
“It’s an almost equal blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with some generous Malbec that’s fleshed out with Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot – a true Bordeaux blend. The fruit flavours are raspberry, dark cherry, dark plum and bittersweet chocolate. Tannins are supple; acidity provides structure.”
