SKU: 2010 Meritage

This is yum-yum juice, for sure!  Similar to our previous releases, this Meritage is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon … heavy on the Merlot.  The result is a very aromatic wine with lots of ripe plum and juicy dark cherry aromas that morph into bright cherries.  With just the right amount of acid and a smooth tannin structure, this wine is a delight to drink alone or to pair with red meat dishes like roast beef or barbeque tri-tip.  If you’re a fan of dark-meat foul, enjoy it with duck or goose. Or try it with something different like stuffed chicken breasts topped with a red wine reduction sauce.

This was a gift to me, and is a fantastic gift for any wine lover. Velvety and rich without overpowering food. What a wonderful surprise.

Served this to my Thanksgiving guests and they loved it! I can't wait to age it for a few years to see how it matures. I've enjoyed all of Chris' wines and love that it is grown locally. I received overnight and shipping was very reasonable compared to other wineries.

I love meritage. I have tasted it in the Willamette Valley. I have tasted it from South Africa. You must try this. If I could, I would always serve it to my esteemed collegues from universities all over the world. This wine is how you can impress anyone!
