Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Merriam is very good for the 2011 vintage. It opens with a fragrant and inviting boysenberry and cherry-vanilla bouquet with a hint of pomegranate. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, balanced and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a very ripe blueberry, red raspberry, and black-cherry blend with nicely integrated oak and a touch of cola in the background. The finish is dry and its fruit flavors are nicely prolonged along with some well-managed mild dusty tannins. This fruit bomb Cab does very well compared too many from this vintage. Its jammy style will appeal too many around the fireplace this winter with some smoked Gouda and stone wheat crackers. Enjoy – Ken
