Have you ever been on a team with someone who makes everyone around them better? In this wine, that someone is Malbec. At 36% of the blend, Malbec brings out the best in the Cabernet Sauvignon (35%), Merlot (28%) and Cabernet Franc (1%) that make up the rest of the Meritage. And by deciding to make our Meritage a full one-third Malbec, we’re not just using it as the ultimate team player, but also bringing its own jammy, blueberry notes to the forefront - something that makes this plush red blend really stand out. All our winemaking decisions get the same attention to detail as the Meritage does. And the results show in every bottle. On that, you have our word...
