2012 Bella Terra Meritage
Merlot mellows out our otherwise intense and earthy 2012 Meritage.
Extremely ripe fruit this year gave our winemaker Fred DiProfio the opportunity to add Merlot to this fine wine.
This year's blend brings in Merlot for the first time, with a generous dollop of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc to bring everything together.
Dark chocolate dominates the nose, with black cherries, currants and baking spices waiting in the background. On the pallate velvety tannins are surrounded by dark chocolate, tobacco, leather and an earthy richness with an extensive finish.
Pair with Grilled portabello mushrooms, zucchini, peppers atop a bed of nutty quinoa.
This wine is one of our unfiltered Bella Terra series.
