2014 Montesquieu Diamond Mountain District Meritage

SKU: URMEMQ-14

  Napa Valley, California

Deep eggplant in color, the potent nose reveals aromas of roasted blackberry and cassis together with hints of dried herbs, espresso grounds, and mushroom. The body showcases massive concentration and the most decadent flavors of blueberry and melted licorice with nuances of dark chocolate shavings, mint and rosemary. The wine’s towering structure and dense tannin is a classic example of Diamond Mountain terroir, a finish that promises a long and memorable evolution for this flagship wine for many, many years to come.

63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot, 8% Cabernet Franc Since its inaugural vintage from the 2006 harvest, our Montesquieu Meritage has been produced from the finest Napa Valley vineyards we work with. We have always pursued unique parcels from naturally low yielding mountain vineyards with the goal of making a bold, balanced wine with complexity, elegance, and the capacity to age. 2014’s warm, dry growing conditions were ideal for the production of this wine and for the first time ever it has been made entirely from Diamond Mountain District fruit.
