(WS=89) This has a friendly feel, with soft-edged plum and blackberry fruit laced with lilac and violet hints, giving way to a light thread of charcoal through the finish. A touch shy on depth, but exhibits nice range and freshness overall. Best from 2017 through 2021. 8,417 cases made. (JS=89) Firm and chewy red with spice, currant and floral aromas and flavors. Medium body. Savory finish. Drink and enjoy. (RP=87-89) With Hubert de Bouard as their consultant, this once popular estate seems to be positioned to shake things up in terms of the overall quality hierarchy in St. Estephe. The 2013 is a major sleeper of the vintage. A blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot and 11% Petit Verdot, it exhibits a deep ruby/plum/purple hue along with notes of creosote, charcoal, blueberries, black raspberries, graphite and spice. This lovely, charming, fruit-filled 2013 should drink well during its first 6-8 years of life. (AG=85-88) The 2013 Meyney is forward, juicy and nicely layered in the glass, with plenty of racy fruit and oak. This isn't an especially subtle wine, but it is tasty just the same. A silky, textured finish rounds out a St. Est?phe built for near term drinking.
