This powerful Meritage is a combination of 54% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Franc, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 4% Malbec which are all grown on our estate Anastasia and Sophia vineyards. The palate is framed by the structural Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon and kept bright by the acidity of the Malbec. It is quite approachable now, but we recommend 3-5 years of cellar aging time in the bottle. Our secret is to open a bottle of this Meritage every few months to a year to taste its beautiful aging process. It is bottled unfined and unfiltered in the summer of 2020.
Tasting notes: Toasty oak, ripe cherries, plum, and desert sage notes.
Food pairing: Pairs wonderfully with dark meat such as Greek-style lamb shank or pork ragout.
