1997 York Creek "Meritage" Spring Mountain District Bordeaux Blend (1.5L)

SKU #1408508

This elegant, balanced claret from an outstanding vintage has been perfectly aged in York Creek's cellars. The nose offers compelling scents of cherry liquor, cedar and damp earth. The body of the wine is seamless with flavors of black cherry, dark plum and currant all deftly balanced. This is very fresh and alive with an overall sense of finesse and proportion, and a subtle but persistent finish showing very fine tannins. Cathy Corison fashioned this for those who favor harmony and balance over sheer power. 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 7% Nerlot. (Steve Bearden, K&L San Francisco)

I was very excited to see our new shipment of York Creek wines arrive. This 1997 Meritage has made previous appearances at K&L, but it's been a couple of years. Upon tasting yesterday, I was thoroughly impressed with the wine's development. It's drinking beautifully right now, and showing much younger than I expected. There is vibrant cassis and red plum fruit, paired nicely with a slight menthol note and silky, well-integrated tannin. The age flavors of forest floor, tobacco and wild mushroom add a layer of intrigue to the wine. Don't hesitate to buy this bottle for your next dinner party!
