Our 2010 Meritage is a blend of noble Bordeaux style varieties that consistently deliver lush tannins and intense blue fruit flavors. Blueberries intermingle with hickory and licorice & black cherry plums. This Meritage is full bodied with rich chunky tannins with a lengthy finish that will beckon to open up another bottle.
39% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Franc, 20% Cabernet, 5% Petite Verdot, 4% Malbec

The Vineyard

Our 2010 Meritage comes from the heart of Napa Valley in the Oak Knoll AVA. Oak Knoll is known for mixed soil types that create tons of full flavored, intense fruit profiles.

The Winemaking

Our winemaker builds this blend piece by piece to ensure a wine with layers of complex aromas and flavors. Kevin uses modern techniques of cold soaking the grapes prior to fermentation and a slow, cool fermentation rate. This insures maximum extractions of color, not tannins, and the preservation of the fruit flavors. This wine is then barrel aged for 24 months in 50% new French oak.

The Vintage

The 2010 Vintage was long and cool and was noted by most as a very advantageous vintage for Northern California. The vintage kept the brix in check while fruit flavors and esters matured.
