Fidelitas Meritage 01: Wine Spectator rating 91 points: "Charlie Hoppes, late of Chateau Ste. Michelle and Three Rivers, started this winery in Walla Walla. This Bordeaux blend is rich, ripe and distinctive for its range of meaty cherry and raspberry flavors, nicely framed in fine tannins and spicy oak in impeccable balance. Has style and grace, and should reward cellaring. Best from 2006 through 2011.H.S.

Charlie 's 2001 Meritage lives up to its older brother, the 2000 vintage, with the intriguing addition of Malbec and Cabernet Franc to the blend. Malbec features in the blends of a number of new releases from the NW, and it adds a dark intensity that accentuates the flavors of the other varietals.

WINEMAKERS NOTES This vintage of Meritage contains four of the traditional Bordeaux red varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Malbec. These four different varietals add to the tremendous Complexity the wine shows both now and well into the future. As with the previous vintage this wine has tremendous concetration on the palate with a black fruit dominated profile.
