WINE REVIEW #6: Heritage Wine Signature Estate Reserve BDX 2011

We had previously gotten to sample this wine at the Cape May Food And Wine Experience in October, and it was one of my personal favorites of the event. Getting to sit down and savor a bottle over Valentine’s dinner at The Blue Rose, one of my favorite restaurants, did nothing to diminish my love for it. It is smooth enough to go down easy, but complex enough to compliment most food. Comprised of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, and Malbec, there are a host of flavors swirling throughout, with each sip seemingly more delightful than the last. It is pleasingly dry and most notably tastes of cherry. Spicy and briny notes are also prevalent throughout, giving it a unique character. I strongly recommend treating yourself to a bottle if you get the chance. GRADE: A+
