This is a blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. The long ripening period for each of these varieties offers consistently great depth and character and complexity in the resulting wines. All the grapes were picked at perfect maturity. The varieties were fermented separately in order to create three distinct wines that would eventually be blended, prior to bottling. The grapes were picked, carefully crushed, and sent to tank to cold soak for 48 hrs. Before bottling, the final blend was composed using each variety’s intrinsic.
Food Pairing Notes
The 2018 Reserve Series Meritage is an extremely versatile wine that can pair well with BBQ ribs, ravioli, pulled pork and pizza.
