This Meritage blend consists of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec. It has deep ruby color and reveals a layer of gorgeous berry aromas such as cassis and black currant and bouquets of toffee and nutmeg. On the palette, ripe berry flavor is focused and lingers long with matured acidity. This special blend is bold and complex with smooth tannins and a hint of sweet oak notes.
All of the grapes for this blend were hand-picked at the ultimate ripeness. They were de-stemmed but not crushed, fermented, and pumped over twice daily. After completion of fermentation, portions of this blend received an extended maceration for up to 30 days in order to gain desired tannin structures and were gently pressed. The blend was racked multiple times throughout the aging process and stayed in 100% French oak barrels for 24 months.
