Uppercut Napa County Meritage 2013, California 

My Rating 86 Points.   

Price $18.

Nice purple in color with a wide purplish rim.
Fruity nose with blueberries, sweet cherries, black currants, licorice, vanilla, earth, wood, chocolates, cloves, alcohol and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and nice legs.

Fruity on the palate with blackberries, plums, raspberries, light oak, spices, earth, coffee, dark chocolates, tobacco, herbs, spices and peppercorn.

Medium plus in length on the finish, with fine grained tannins and tart cherries.

This is a nice Bordeaux blend from Napa County, California. Balanced with nice complexity and a very tangy finish. Feels more like a right Bank Bordeaux.

A good everyday wine. Good by itself, but better with food, and needs 15 minutes to open up . Will probably be better in a year or two.

14.9% alcohol by volume.
