Split-a-Batch of Meritage
Saturday, March 28th at 10 AM
$90 for 10 bottles (bottles and labels included)
Join us on this morning and learn how to make this fine Bordeaux style wine.  No experience necessary, and you don't have to scrub your feet...we make it easy, educational and fun.
This is a blend of Bordeaux's finest, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. 
These three friends all work so well together and each contributes their individual strength to the wine.  Cabernet Sauvignon, or "King Cab", brings the structure with his firm tannins and adds complexity with his aromas of cassis and black currant.  Cabernet Franc adds spice, with his peppery nose and red fruit undertones.  Merlot likes to round things out with his approachable plum and cherry characteristics and his softer, rounder body.   Together, they really do create a harmonious blend.
