The word “Meritage” is loosely defined as made with only Bordeaux varietal grapes. This excellent Vintner’s Reserve is an example of a Meritage from Ranch 32 that contains 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 23% Petite Verdot, three of Bordeaux’s premier grapes. The individual lots were blended just prior to bottling. The nose features aromas of blackberries and dark plums with ingrained overtones of mocha, tobacco and dark chocolate. These flavors carry through nicely with a near perfect soft tannin feel that morphs into a lingering, sustained finish. Aged 18 months in oak. Pair with any hearty dish or meat such as grilled lamb or prime rib. Try aged goat cheese for dessert. Drink now and until 2025.
