Winemaker Notes
The art of blending. Having identified the most expressive rows in our estate vineyard, we begin shaping our Meritage wine while on the vine. Merlot and Cabernet Franc always seem to lead the blend with full, ripe fruit character making to wine rich. All wine lots are cellared separately in many formats of French oak. Cellared for 18 months and bottle aged prior to release.
