Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot all contribute to this wine's unique flavor. A brilliant dark ruby in color, this Meritage is robust with aromas of black cherry, currants, and blueberry with subtle notes of succulent dark chocolate and cinnamon completing the nose. Flavors of cassis and boysenberries are lush and pronounced on the palate, followed by hints of roasted coffee and maple. This is a complex wine that is well-structured and has a long, smooth finish.
Blend: 35% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Cabernet Franc, 3% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot
