Meritage 2020

Meritage 2020

Definitely one of our biggest and most powerful wines to date! 2020 was a warm, dry vintage that produced concentrated wines with big structure, big tannins, and big flavor. Our Meritage was the first red wine we blended in 2020, with our winemaker carefully selecting the best barrels from our Cab Sauvignon, Cab Franc, and Merlot barrels. The resulting blend has the heady structure of Cabernet Sauvignon tempered with the sweet berry notes of Merlot and just a hint of herbal character from the Cab Franc. Lots of cherry cola and sweet vanilla. Full-bodied with toasty oak, this is a showstopper wine.
