Allure Meritage 2017

Allure Meritage 2017

A soft, complex, Bordeaux-style wine for soft, complex foods. Enjoy it as a solitary experience or pair with Lasagna or Osso Bucco - whatever you choose - you win!

Allure is a Meritage, a seamless blend of the Nobel 5 Bordeaux varietals, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc but with not one varietal dominating. There is no doubt that this wine contains all of the “noble five” grapes of Bordeaux, but they have become so integrated that they are now the “Sixth Bordeaux!”

Tasting Notes

An intense crimson color and a subtle bouquet that is both fruity and floral, displaying notes of fresh fig, blackberry, and red fruit such as raspberry, as well as hints of violet found in great vintages.

The wine is delightful on the palate thanks to its power, richness, body, and concentration. Blessed with superb balance, Allure Meritage displays an incredible combination of power, delicacy, ripeness, and freshness.

Complete and complex, it is above all smooth. Its complex bouquet will blossom over time while the wine's intrinsic freshness and power will undoubtedly remain unchanged.
