After a long wait and much anticipation, this premium meritage has been released. A blend of 69% Merlot, 26% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc and 1% Malbec, these grapes were hand selected from only the best of each block. Alexandra exhibits a majestic ruby color with fragrant aromas of ripe black plums and blackberries with underlying lashes of spicy cloves and licorice. Perfectly balanced, this wine has a full generous mouth and a long, lingering finish.
  Bergen Road (Meritage)
his Macari family favorite is a careful blend of 42% Merlot, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Malbec, 5% Petit Verdot. Hints of nutmeg and pepper emit aromas of wild berries, cherries and plums laced with sweetness of vanilla bean. Mild, soft tannins grip the palate, intensifying into a big, juicy burst of red fruits with a luscious velvety finish.
  Block E
A beautiful dessert wine, crafted in the ice-wine style, this wine leads off with a bouquet of lychee, melons and spring flowers to a velvety mouth, rich with the exotic flavors of mandarin, mango and passion fruit. A long lingering, luxurious yet clean finish, with just a hint of honey and a touch of peach lends the perfect ending to any meal. Serves well with fresh fruits, cheeses or cheesecake. Wonderful as an aperitif wine when served with paté.
  Cabernet Franc
This wine exhibits spicy aromas reminiscent of cloves, nutmeg, and just a hint of berry. A light bodied, soft Cabernet Franc. It is fruity up front, while appearing chewy mid palate due to the dense flavors of plum and pitted fruit. The finish is long and lingering with just a touch of soft oak.
  Collina 48: Chardonnay
This white table wine consisting of Chardonnay and just a touch of Sauvignon Blanc has a clean lime-lemon aroma with subtle hints of pineapple. A pleasant light to medium palate of white fruit. An easy, everyday, quaffer.
  Collina 48: Merlot
Consisting of 100% Merlot, this wine was crafted entirely in steel, bringing about a wine which is light and lean with upfront fruit. Flavors of sweet cherries and ripe plum on the palate make this Collina, known as a "Best Buy", food friendly and perfect with pasta, pizza and burgers. A wonderful fruity and quaffable red!
  Early Wine
A fresh, crisp, bright wine, bursting with the aromas of kiwi, lime, and hints of green plantains, touches the palate with the taste of a tart Granny Smith apple and hints of lime. It has a hidden sweetness and a long, lingering, refreshing finish. A chardonnay like no other!
  Estate Chardonnay
A steel fermented chardonnay, perfectly balanced with fruit and mineral tones. Bright and refreshing, beginning with a tropical bouquet, this wine is fruity yet clean. Melon like flavors arouse the palate to a mineral almost flinty finish. Enjoy as an aperitif accompanied by cheese, crudite or with seafood, poultry, or pork.
  Estate Merlot
A medium to full bodied wine starts off with aromas of ripe juicy raspberries. Aged 10% in new oak and 16 months in neutral oak this wine will continue to improve for the next 2 to 3 years. The soft flavor of plums entices the palate to hint of dried fruits mid palate, leading to a long full finish with touches of mocha, chocolate, plump berries and soft, smooth tannins.
  Merlot Reserve
A medium bodied wine, with a nose reminiscent of soft, almost sweet vanilla and a hint of cedar in the bouquet. A well rounded structure leads to a balanced flavor of red and black cherries and plump round fruit that grips the palate. The finish is long and lingering with a hint of dark chocolate tinged with mocha.
  Reserve Barrel Fermented Chardonnay
This elegant chardonnay was crafted in very small quantity, using only hand selected grapes. An enticing nose of caramel, apple and spicy asian pear leads to a creamy, almost frothy sensation on the palate. Lees-stirring for 3 months kept the flavor of the fruit intact, bringing about a chardonnay with the perfect balance of fruit and oak. This chardonnay is broad with hints of tropical fruits and stonefruit. A long lingering, yet clean finish, with just a hint of citrus, this elegant chardonnay aged for 10 months in French Barrique is drinking wonderfully now, yet it should continue to develop and gain complexity for the next few years.
A wonderfully dry Rosé, this is a carefully selected blend consisting of 40% Cabernet Franc, 29% of Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 3% Malbec, and 1% Petit Verdot. Beginning with its beautiful salmon color, this Rosé begins to arouse the palate with the aroma of watermelon and toffee. A true "summer" wine, the flavor of sweet ripe, juicy cherries envelopes the palate leading to a finish reminiscent of nougat. The perfect picnic wine, this wine can be enjoyed all year long!
  Sauvignon Blanc
This Macari "Benchmark", the 2004 Sauvignon Blanc is at once aromatic, light and clean with a herbaceous, grassy quality. Beginning with citrusy aromas this bright, yet delicate wines fills the palate with flavors of grapefruit and white stone fruits (think peach). The crisp and flinty mineral quality leads to a long, lingering and full finish. Perfectly balanced with fruit and acidity this wine is sure to become a favorite summertime "quaffer" long after summer is gone.
Sette marries the soft, round richness of Merlot with the spicy pepperiness of Cabernet Franc. This wine is bold, yet delicate, with a full mouth feel and mild tannins. Flavors of cherries, berries and pepper satiate the palate. A lingering and juicy finish of spice and berry doesn't stop the tongue from seeking seconds!
