Our Meritage Right blend red wine is robust and complex, yet smooth and full bodied. This wine is made in the style of the traditional French wine made on the East side of the Gironde River, also known as the "Right Bank" style where Merlot is dominant in the blend, followed by smaller amounts of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. This blend is 67% California Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc and 11% Washington Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged for one full year in French Oak barrels. Dark fruit and oak on the nose, it is full bodied, tannic, and complex, with a long finish. This wine pairs very well with steak or red meats. This wine will age gracefully, in fact, cellaring will improve this wine over time if you can be patient enough.
