Yes, I’ve had them all and if they are on sale, I’ll beat you to them! I’m a big fan of Clark’s winemaking skills and any year of the Meritage showcases those skills impressively. Though the Lake County Meritage is heavy on the Merlot side, the Lake County juice he uses does not drink like your typical Cali Merlot and when blended with Cab Franc it is beyond delicious…think higher end right bank Bordeaux. The Ishi Pishi Meritage is a totally different experience. All organic, no added sulfites along with living in a seasoned barrel for over five years really makes this a special wine. Beautiful purple color, nice minerality and a perfect pairing for a high end steak.
Just took a peek at the sale price and damn…it’s a steal! Almost as good as a killer Casemates deal!
OK, Minnesota folks. I see there’s no delivery to the Godforsaken land of South Dakota, even though I’ve had some of Clark’s wines delivered here in the past. Is anyone interested in putting together a big order and splitting it up? (What an idea - we could even call it “casemates” or something!)
