Mocha-dark chocolate on the nose from oak aging, followed by tart dark fruit on the palate. Smooth and full-bodied.

Meritage food pairings: cocoa-rubbed beef skewers, smokehouse ribs.

This blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot is filled with aromas of rich black cherry, blackcurrant, raspberry and cocoa powder. Medium-full body with a robust fruit core and ripe, young tannins. The whole thing is tied together nicely with a bright ribbon of acidity. This will evolve in cellar for 1-3 years, but it’s also drinking well now. Source: Vintages Wine Catalogue.
