Winemaker's Notes:

Fleur de Lyeth's proprietary blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec is crafted in the noble winemaking tradition of unifying the best characteristics of multiple grape varieties to produce a harmonious wine with balanced complexity. Lyeth has been a pioneer in the art of blending wines in California since 1981; the elegant Fleur de Lyeth honors Lyeth's long heritage with this silky, rich wine. Perfectly balanced, the wine opens with luscious flavors of Bing cherry and plum accented by graceful notes of strawberry and cherry cordial.

With a light-medium body, round tannins and a clean finish, this wine is smooth and would pair with grilled chicken or a light pasta.

About Lyeth Winery:

Established by Chip Lyeth in 1981, Lyeth was one of the first wineries in California to pursue the unique complexity and composition achieved by the marriage of Cabernet Sauvignon with the other major Bordeaux varieties, now known as the Meritage style. The term "Meritage" (pronouced like "heritage") is a combination of the words "merit" and "heritage".

Lyeth became a founding member of the Meritage Association in 1988, which created the Meritage concept as a means of identifying blends produced in the Bordeaux style. Today it continues the tradition of blending family and tradition in its wines, winning praise from critics and consumers worldwide.
