Product Overview

Winery's Notes: "2015 was a very warm year which resulted in wines rich in concentration and this wine from our high elevation vineyard is no exception. The aromatics are so expressive and enticing showing a typicity of Cabernet franc, dry herbs and undertones of ripe compote which give this nose a wow factor. There is a loamy, muscular tension to the wine that segues into its energy in the mouthfeel resulting in a wine that exudes balance and age-worthiness - a must add to the cellar."

Varietal Composition: 53% Cabernet Franc, 47% Merlot
Appellation: Knights Valley AVA
Aging: 20 months French oak
Production: 360 cases

95 Points - Wine Advocate
"Blended of 53% Cabernet Franc and 47% Merlot, the 2015 Mekerra Proprietary Red has a deep garnet-purple color and compelling nose of crushed red currants, black plums and warm blackberries with touches of spice box, pencil shavings and bay leaves plus a waft of mocha. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the mouth with spicy, fresh black fruit, framed by velvety tannins and great freshness, finishing with lingering earth and mineral notes coming through." -LPB, 12/29/17

95 Points - Vinous
"Mocha, red cherry, sage, tobacco and gravel notes infuse the 2015 Proprietary Red Mekerra. In this vintage, Mekerra offers a striking interplay between the savory, mineral notes that are so typical of this Knights Valley site along with the textural richness that is a signature of the year." -AG, Nov/2017

93 Points - Wine Spectator
"Densely fruited, with warm black currant, açaí and blackberry flavors that have melded together with baker's chocolate, dark tobacco and loam notes. The structure is very fine-grained in feel, giving this hefty wine admirable detail. Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Best from 2020 through 2029. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 360 cases made." -JM, 10/15/19
