Our Meritage is a blend of five varietals, layered together in a wine that is engaging, fruit forward and complex. Aromas of bright red cherries, plums and berry pie leap from the glass, gently rounded by a kiss of sweet caramel and vanilla. The juicy fruit continues through the palate with full-bodied flavors and ripe, round tannins. Mocha and chocolate notes lend subtle nuances to the lively cherry-berry flavors that span the length of the palate and into the long finish. This wine will evolve in complexity as the multiple varietals produce tertiary aromas and flavors. Pair this generous, fruit-driven wine with roasted meat dishes, barbecued foods or pasta.
Wine maker notes
A majority of the fruit for this wine comes from various estate vineyards on the Central Coast. Our Red Hills Vineyard in southern Paso Robles produces outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon bursting with juicy fruit and layers of spice. Providing much of the Merlot and Malbec, our Paris Valley Ranch vineyard in Paso Robles gives ripe berry character, round tannins and hints of sage and spice. The Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot come from Sage Vineyard near our winery at Paicines, and are joined by fruit from our estate vineyard in San Benito, which gives balance and richness to the blend.

Food pairing
All-around enjoyable, this wine can be paired with a variety of dishes, from Spanish tapas to American barbecue.
