Tasting Notes

MERITUS is the paragon of Fall Creek’s winemaking, crafted only when sublime vintage qualtity exists. The 2015 MERITUS reveals the beauty of Hill Country terroir in this blend of Merlot (80%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (20%) from Certenberg Vineyards.

The greater proportion of Merlot lends the wine a graceful and defined flavor profile reminiscent of Damson plum, sweet cedar, tea leaf and black currant cordial with a hint of violet. With such elegant structure and capacity for ageing, our winemaker chose to allow the 2015 Meritus to age for 18 months in barrel and an additional 2 years in bottle before release. The outcome...a wine of finesse and charm.

Suggested Food Pairing

The depth and structure of this wine call for a robust dish to be paired. A rich beef dish, a fine steak, or a creamy blue cheese would be the ideal partner to such a complex wine.
