2017 1850 Meritage
Harry's Hill Vineyard
A blend of 50% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Malbec, and 10% Cabernet Franc from a single vineyard in Fair Play. The grapes were all cofermented, with an extended maceration until January before being pressed to barrel. Aged in 50% new French and 50% 2nd fill American Oak for 20 months.
This wine has aromas of vanilla, cherry, blueberry, chocolate and truffle followed by tart cherry, cassis, clove, and pepper flavors with a medium structure and long finish. Smooth up front, with soft tannins that build on the back and mid palate.
Pairs with a hearty steak or rich stroganoff. Cheese Pairings: Parmesan, smoked gouda, sharp cheddar are good choices.
