Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The Napa Cellars 2017 Meritage is a sophisticated wine that delivers an opulent bouquet of cherry preserves and brambly fruit on the nose. These aromas unfold flavors of blackberry, black currant, spice and cocoa. This is an intense, dark inky wine with well-structured tannins. For a perfect pairing, serve with braised short ribs drizzled with homemade barbecue sauce and a touch of rosemary.
Vineyard Notes
Grapes for the Napa Cellars 2017 Meritage are carefully selected from various vineyards and specific regions within the Napa Valley AVA. This red blend is made up of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Petit Verdot comprised of 72% estate grown fruit. These vines produce fruit with layers of complexity resulting in wines with earthy minerality and exceptional, natural acidity.
Production Notes
Once harvested, the fruit is carefully sorted, de-stemmed and gently crushed. To enhance color and flavor, extensive seed removal occurs and délestage procedures are incorporated during the 15-18 day maceration period. This process helps to release the aromatic characters to create full, round tannins. After fermentation, the wine is aged in French oak, 50% of which were new barrels, for 23 months.
Other Notes
76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Malbec, 9% Petit Verdot
