The crème de la crème of Thomas Fogarty wines! The 2007 “Lexington” Meritage is a red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc, hand selected from the best lots of fruit harvested from the winery’s high elevation Gist Ranch Vineyard in the Santa Cruz Mountains. This suave, dense, and wonderfully complex mountain wine is an excellent representation of their Santa Cruz Mountains estate and is one of Thomas Fogarty’s strongest efforts to date. Beautifully aromatic with notes of cedar, Santa Rosa plum and sweet tobacco, the 2007 Lexington is bursting with flavors of cassis, dark berry fruit, spices, and clove. Its sweet, mouthfilling tannins and subtle notes of oak highlight the palate of complex flavors and linger on the soft finish.
