Our debut Meritage, this offering was harvested from the Saint Hilaire vineyard, situated in the Salinas river valley just east of Templeton, California in the Paso Robles American Viticulture Area. The wine was aged in 40% new French oak barrels for 22 months. The wine received another nine months of bottle aging before being released. This is a big, dark, richly structured wine with amazingly depth, smoky hints of raspberry, cassis and vanilla!
