2013 Estate Meritage




36% Petit Verdot, 31% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot

Tasting Notes:

Color: Very dark opaque garnet with a very dark purple hue. Lighter purple rim. 
Aroma: Chocolate covered cherries, cassis, blackberries and vanilla. 
Structure: Medium tannins, medium acidity. Very dry. 
Flavors: Dried cherries, blackberries. Very smooth mouthfeel. The fruit is a little more subdued, making this feel more like an Old World wine. The tannins are a bit drying, but the juicy mouthfeel (from the cool weather climate acidity) balances both perfectly. 
Pairing: Beef stew, Manchego cheese
