Country: Central Coast, USA
Tasting Notes: Inspired by the European travels of Robert Mondavi, this Meritage blend is rich, elegant, and complex. It includes all five classic red Bordeaux varieties: Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. Our 2014 Meritage is deep garnet in color. Ripe blackberry, mulberry, blueberry, and violet aromas open with hints of mulling spice, and dark chocolate are followed by flavors of mixed berry cobbler, cinnamon, and Tahitian vanilla. The tannins are rich and chewy. The finish lingers with brown sugar, caramel, and spicy oak. Enjoy with bacon-wrapped filet mignon, cave-ripened blue cheese, and wild mushroom risotto.
Varietal: Blended of Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot.
Pairing: Enjoy this delectable Pinot Noir with grilled salmon, pot sticker, lamb burgers, and a variety of cheeses.
