Full-bodied, robust and rustic, with a good tannic grip on the palate - decant for 2 hours. Aromas and flavours of black fruit and toasty oak. Try it with a rare steak.

Meritage Reserve food pairings: beef and lamb dishes, roasts, stews and hearty casseroles, steak, prime rib.

Reviews and Ratings

Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon blend, trellised to ensure full ripening and
thus the full berry flavours of blueberry, dark cherries and blackberries. Those
flavours are complimented with spice accents, leather and smoky tobacco
flavours. The aromas of cherries and licorice are rich and complex. Round,
full-bodied mouth feel is complimented by soft yet firm tannins, Built to age in
your cellar for another 5-10 years.

  Best Books of the Year

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
