Tasting Notes & Food Pairing

Tobacco aromas mingle with vanilla and American oak on the nose. On the palate this wine is full of summer plums that give way to currants, bramble berry and leather with a long finish of sandalwood and dusty black cherries. With firm tannins, the 2013 Meritage will develop for years to come. Decant before serving, and pair this blend with venison with red currant and Morel mushroom sauce, Bordeaux marinated flank steak or cacao rubbed Delmonico steak.

Vintage Notes

Yet again the Finger Lakes experienced another very harsh winter in 2015. Two harsh winters in a row caused lots of bud death and vine damage, but as always, lower yields equal improved fruit quality. In spite of the harsh winter we were graced with a growing season that started out cool and wet but finished with a healthy showing of sun and heat. Harvest kicked off at the usual time with lots of sun and was temperate with not much rain. All in all it was a good harvest and though yields were down between 20-40% on nearly every varietal the result was exceptional quality, complex fruit across the board. Expect lush, rich, voluptuous wines from this vintage!
