This is a Meritage blend that consists of all five Bordeaux varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petite Verdo and Malbec. It expresses bright fruits and beautiful balance. Matured red berry flavors and subtle, sweet oak notes entertain the palate while supple tannins provide smooth mouthfeel. This is the perfect food wine that can pair well with wide range of great dishes.
The ripened grapes were hand-picked. The grapes were de-stemmed with a portion of the whole berries left intact, fermented with inoculated yeasts, and pumped over daily. After completion of fermentation the wine received a short extended maceration and was gently pressed. The wine was then transferred to French oak barrels for aging. The wine was racked multiple times during aging.
