Topel’s 2012 “Le Mariage” Meritage is a blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 5% Malbec. This Meritage wine is only made in years when the harvests of the specific Bordeaux varieties that comprise the blend are of the very highest quality. 2012 was one of those blessed years at the Topel estate! Dominated by dark fruit notes of cassis, figs, blueberries and a hint of rose, the 2012 “Le Mariage” offers rich and balanced aromas with hints of tobacco and chocolate starting to develop with aging. This full- bodied wine carries the complexity of a Bordeaux blend, yet it displays the fruit-driven nature of California. Flavors of dark plums, black cherries, and Herbs de Provence come through on the smooth and decidedly elegant palate. Enjoy!
