Allure Meritage is a soft, complex American Bordeaux-style wine for soft, complex foods.
This wine is a seamless blend of the Nobel 5 Bordeaux varietals. In order of blend quantity, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and Petit Verdot. With not one varietal dominating they have become so integrated that they are now a new, unique wine.
In the mouth a lovely soft, juicy, complex fruit with an underlying soft tannin structure as a result of using open-top tanks and a punch-down process for winemaking.
This wine is delightful on the palate with its richness and concentration. Blessed with superb balance, Allure Meritage is a wine for food lovers.
Summer brought generous sun during the day and cooler marine influences, virtually uninterrupted by major heat spikes. The relatively mild summer followed by extended fall sunshine and moderate heat created near-ideal conditions as the fruit developed flavor complexity, approaching maturity with gradual increases in sugar levels, reaching optimal balance of brix and pH levels at harvest.
