2012 Estate Meritage, Hawley Vineyard

The newest release of our Estate Meritage is a blockbuster of a wine, modeled after wines from the left bank region of Bordeaux, France. The blend consists of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. Aged for a little over two years in French oak barrels, you will be greeted with bold aromas of blueberry and cassis, with a hint of cedar in the background. This is a full-bodied wine, loaded with layers of dark fruit, leather, and graphite. Approachable and seductive now, this densely structured wine will reward those who are willing to cellar this wine for years to come.
