The Meritage you've been asking us to produce. A proprietary blend of our estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon from the Coombsville AVA, and carefully selected grapes married to make a wine for all occasions. The lovely nose presents classic cedar notes from the predominant cabernet, with beautiful cranberry, strawberry notes, rounded out with subtle hints of leather, maple, and pie crust. Your first taste will reveal brilliant red fruits with cherry, raspberry and plum leading the way; delicious savory spice notes chime in, with a light lavender touch on the mid-palate. The medium-bodied wine is complimented by firm, yet subtle tannins, and a lingering finish leaves you longing for another sip. Drink now through 2029.
