After aging an additional 12 months in American oak barrels, our 2019 Meritage transformed into 2019 Meritage Reserve. The extra aging gives this wine a bold nose and perception of a boozier taste compared to the original version; however, a surprisingly smooth finish is noticed on the palate due to the mellowing wood extraction.
A special selected blend of barrels of various dates and use.
Meritage makes a great match for a charred burger with gruyere cheese, mushrooms and onions. Think rich meats with earthy, nutty flavors and you will have an excellent meal. Wood-fired pizza and tomato-based pasta dishes with rich spices or meat sauces also pair well!
