Filled with aromas of blackberry, barrel toast, and black and red peppercorn floral notes are first to climb from the glass.
Aromas of dark blackberry, black cherry along with mocha and espresso transition seamlessly to the palate. The wine is beautifully structured, delivering length, body and texture to complete the experience.

Dark ruby with concentrated notes of blackberry, black currant, anise and earthy characteristics on the nose. Excellent body and mouthfeel. A wonderfully balanced tannin-acid structure.

The nose is fruit forward and very deep and concentrated. The body follows the aroma and is fruit forward with good tannin balance throughout the palate.
Dark fruit aromas dominate with background hints of cocoa and toasted oak. The palate reveals blackberry, blueberry and plum with well integrated tannins. Lingering flavors of leather, forest floor and spice round out the finish.
A deep roasted walnut or roasted sweet corn character along with more typical chocolate covered cherry and black spice aromas. It’s delicious, it’s soft and it’s thick though not heavy.
Mouthwatering dark fruit aromas of blackberry, cherry and plum. Warm and inviting palate with red fruits, violet, sage, and a hint of spiciness.
Concentrated, complex aromas with notes of grilled peach, pear, buttered croissant, and vanilla set the stage for a rich, and full-bodied Chardonnay. Balance, structure and bright acidity make it an age-worthy wine.

Deep and concentrated in color mirroring the intense black fruit aromatics on the nose. The palate is delicate and smooth with flavors of blackberry, plum, and violet that are complemented by clove, and a hint of smoky vanilla.
Every time I taste the FJ Meritage with my friends, I’m completely astonished by the complexity, power and subtle elegance. It completely identifies with the personality of Rutherford. The fully concentrated aromas unlocks beautifully with dark berries, black fruits with touches of sagebrush and cedar; seamless mouthfeel of black cherry, cocoa and hints of tobacco.

“Beefy aromatics, focused dark fruits, tobacco, and organic tones of sage and dried herbs imparts a brilliant foil.”
