Karamoor Estate 2015 Meritage
Ripe raspberry and black cherry fruit aromas are accented here by notes of vanilla, spicy American oak and just a little bit of an earthy edge.
Medium-bodied, the palate strikes a terrific balance between fruit and emerging secondary earthy and savory flavors. There is a bit of tannic grip here, but it's far from bulky resulting in a seamless feel. Though lacking a bit in mid-palate concentration, this is a well-executed Mid-Atlantic Bordeaux blend.
