Ravine Meritage 2019
Our bang on Bordeaux red!! A lovely blend of the three varietals we grow on site: Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Each contributing their own flavour and role in build structure and body in this wine. The bones and strength-Cabernet Franc, the muscle and energy/strength- merlot, and the fatty and sexy curves-Cabernet Sauvignon
Purple plums, fresh ripe strawberries, coca, and a hint of blackberry jam fill my nose. Soft supple nuances of dark fruit (blackberry, brambleberry, dark cherries) float across your tongue with a Mediterranean feel , that has you experiencing the salty ocean air, rosemary, thyme, and a few ripe black olives mixed in with sun ripened figs. Starts off satiny silky and finishes with a strong dry lingering finish. Its gorgeous representation of cool climate refined red.
Our Meritage pairs great with nice, rustic charcuterie platters, aged firm cheeses, and nicely grilled steaks, stews, or date night.
