52% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 1% Malbec.
Knights Valley is a vineyard that Beringer has a rich history with, and
one that consistently rewards me with wonderful fruit to work with.
Blending the Meritage is both challenging and rewarding with such
interesting blocks to choose from–each one expressing an interesting
and unique piece of the rustic terroir. The 2008 Meritage has aromas
of baked cherry and plums, candied violets and cinnamon. It is marked
by a ripe, generous palette of plum spices and mocha, rounded out by
a lush, lingering finish.
