Dry Creek Vineyard The Mariner Meritage 750ml. The grapes for this delicious Bordeaux-inspired blend come from several of our most prized estate and hillside vineyards in the Dry Creek Valley. At first swirl, the wine displays aromas of black currant, black cherry and spiced plum. Several more minutes reveal hints of allspice, nutmeg, cocoa powder and dried flowers. The palate has dark berry flavors along with earthy complexity and savory notes. It finishes with notes of fine leather, dried herbs and toasty cedar. Good acidity will help this wine to age beautifully for years to come.
