The word Meritage combines "merit," reflecting the quality of the grapes, with "heritage," which recognizes the centuries-old tradition of blending. A Meritage is a blend of two or more of the "noble" Bordeaux varietals.
Our Meritage 2013 combines Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot into a lovely complex and full-bodied red blend. Fruit forward aromas of black berries and cherries. Intense, rich flavours of ripe blackberry, fresh plum and black cherry on the palate. Supple tannins with hints of toasted oak and vanilla spice linger through the velvety finish.
Serve at room temperature with roasted lamb or duck, grilled steaks or Lasagna. Also pairs well with aged & blue cheeses.
