The Meritage designation on our label assures that this wine is a blend of at least two of the red Bordeaux varieties. With this vintage of our rich and complex 2014 Meritage, we blended 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 18% Petit Verdot, and 5% Malbec. Cabernet Sauvignon provides a foundation of dark fruits, structure, and density; Merlot and Malbec round out the mid-palate with luscious fruit; and Petit Verdot adds support with additional tannins, rich color, and incredible fruit freshness. We aged all of the wine in a combination of French and American oak barrels for 18 months.
A deep crimson color, aromas of mocha, ripe plum, and blackberry, with cocoa and a mélange of baking spices. The wine displays a rich, exquisite mouthfeel, velvety tannins, and ripe fruit balanced with notes of chocolate and French vanilla. Velvety tannins complement a lengthy, utterly elegant finish.
