Our 2008 Meritage is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Malbec. Lush tannins and intense fruit flavors of black currant, blackberries, plums, and cocoa combine on the palate for an excellent structure. Our Meritage is full, supple, and rich with a lengthy finish that will leave you lingering for more.
54% Cabernet, 19% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc, 10% Malbec
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 in 22 months in 100% New French Oak.
Our 2008 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.
