Rockway Vineyards 2012 Meritage, Small Lot

Dominated by Cabernet Franc (53%) with the addition of 27% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. On the nose the red fruit just sings and dominates, but its backing vocalists are tobacco and vanilla, and they hum a very pretty tune. Palate starts off with a silky smooth entry delivering a plethora of fruit along with oak, spice and vanilla … all this is balanced by acidity and the tannins keep all that fruit at bay – plus there’s an exceptionally good length on the finish. The rejuvenation of Rockway’s wine program continues and we all benefit when they are making wines like this one. Price: $19.95 – Rating: ****
