Noble Ridge Meritage 2003

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe first time we have tasted this wine and it's an impressive start. The blend is an 80/20 merlot/cabernet and fine use of cabernet in our estimation. Love the plush dark fruit (okay maybe it's a bit warm and lifted) and the chocolate mint notes on the nose and palate. Lots of vanilla and plenty of alcohol give it a smooth 'sweet' finish. A solid start that should point to better wines as some refinement is brought to the mix. Drink or hold for five years.Tasted: 07 April 2007Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices:
