Knights Valley is a vineyard that Beringer has a rich history with, and
one that consistently rewards me with wonderful fruit to work with.
Blending the Meritage is both challenging and rewarding with such
interesting blocks to choose from–each one expressing an interesting
and unique piece of the rustic terroir. The 2008 Meritage has aromas
of baked cherry and plums, candied violets and cinnamon. It is marked
by a ripe, generous palette of plum spices and mocha, rounded out by
a lush, lingering finish.
–Laurie Hook, Winemaker
Good deep red-ruby. Crushed berries and licorice on the nose; begins a bit porty but freshening minerality emerges with aeration. Sweet, lush and concentrated, with dark berry and chocolate flavors dominating. The wine's building, tongue-coating tannins call for a year or two of patience. This wine was formerly called Alluvium.
