Just seventeen miles north of our Beringer Winery in St. Helena sits Knights Valley, an undeveloped hidden gem of volcanic rock and alluvial soils perfect for Bordeaux-style wines. For over three decades, Beringer has produced wines here, and now we're pleased to present this Knights Valley Meritage, a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, showing notes of rich berry fruit, cocoa and smoky oak.
"The 2010 Red Blend Meritage, from vineyards in Knights Valley, is supple, inviting and totally delicious. Juicy dark berries, freshly cut flowers and licorice are some of the many nuances that inform the generous, caressing finish. The 2010 is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Cabernet Franc and 10% Merlot."
