Tasting Notes

We are excited to announce the release of our 2013 Meritus, already an award-winning wine, taking a Gold medal in the 2017 San Francisco International Wine Competition earlier this year. In this vintage, we see the elegance and aromatic potential of the Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes we source from Certenberg Vineyard in northwest Texas Hill Country.

For the first time, Merlot steps into a place of prominence as 53% of the blend. This lends the wine a graceful and defined flavor profile reminiscent of dried rose petals, aged cedar, red plum and currant with a hint of Assam black tea. With such structure and capacity for ageing, the 2013 Meritus spent 20 months ageing in barrel and an additional year ageing in bottle before release. The outcome...a wine of finesse and charm.

This wine is perfect for a robust beef dish, such as ribeye steak, or with substantial, creamy cheeses, such as Brie or Gorgonzola.
