2013 Bella Terra Meritage
Merlot mellows out our otherwise intense and earthy 2013 Meritage.
Extremely ripe fruit this year gave our winemaker Fred DiProfio the opportunity to add Merlot to this fine wine.
Fragrant, earthy notes of expensive cigars, tanned leather, dark berries and currants. The palate is rich with dark chocolate covered ripe fruit and black currants, wrapped in a thick blanket of firm tannins. Serve with slow cooked Beef Short Ribs. Although rich and meaty now, this wine deserves a rest. Cellar 10-12 yrs.
This wine is one of our unfiltered Bella Terra series.
