2013 Meyney, St-Estèphe
A juicy wine with blueberry and blackberry character. Medium body with firm tannins and a fresh, citrus finish. Wow. Surprisingly, outstanding.
This packs some dark juicy plum, blackberry and red currant fruit together at the core, backed by a layered ganache note on the well-toasted finish. Shows surprising depth for the vintage, revealing a black fruit profile. (Web-2014)

With Hubert de Bouard as their consultant, this once popular estate seems to be positioned to shake things up in terms of the overall quality hierarchy in St. Estephe. The 2013 is a major sleeper of the vintage. A blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot and 11% Petit Verdot, it exhibits a deep ruby/plum/purple hue along with notes of creosote, charcoal, blueberries, black raspberries, graphite and spice. This lovely, charming, fruit-filled 2013 should drink well during its first 6-8 years of life. (RP)
The 2013 Meyney is forward, juicy and nicely layered in the glass, with plenty of racy fruit and oak. This isn't an especially subtle wine, but it is tasty just the same. A silky, textured finish rounds out a St. Estèphe built for near term drinking. (AG)
