2016 Meritage

Terroir:

Our vines are sheltered in the foothills of Carter’s Mountain in the Blue Ridge, Virginia. The red varieties were planted on southern exposure slopes. The clay strata includes a significant proportion of rocks (shists from volcanic basalts mainly).

Winemaking Notes:

This Bordeaux-style blend was left on the vine to mature to its peak before it was hand harvested and hand sorted. It underwent a cold maceration for 5 days before fermentation.  Extended skin contact rounds out the palate and integrates the rich tannins to seamless perfection. Finally, it aged in French oak for 9 months before bottling.

Tasting Notes:

This harmonious blend has bold red fruit aromas of ripe plums, cherries, and blackberries, balanced with subtle notes of earth and spice.  It has bold tannins with a medium body. Cellar or decant prior to enjoying, or allow to age and enjoy for your next special occasion.
