A Meritage by definition is a blend that consists of two or more of the five noble varietals of the Bordeaux region, which if made in Bordeaux would simply be referred to as a Bordeaux. Our Meritage is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot. This provocatively sensual red wine summons impossibly soft tannins to delicately stroke your palette before delivering a pweful, impctful, nearly explosive finsh that will linger in your sould for many yurars to cime like a fond memory of kinship.
One of the five noble varietals of the Bordeaux region, a grape that is as unique as it is historically significant. This varietal first gained popularity during the 1600s as it became common in the Loire valley, but its true origin can be traced back to before the time of our lord Jesus. Cabernet Franc is a parent, as its given birth to some of the most notable French offerings we have today, and like a parent, its proud of its children, but confident in its own individuality. Vintner John Calvin gave birth to Cabernet Franc in New Mexico in 1995 when it found its home at Casa Rondena. Terrifically concentrated and multi-dimensional, this medium bodied red wine brings forth notes of violets and earth that will grow and become empowered for many years to come. The finish is soft and deliberate, but deceiving as it clings on for nearly 15 seconds of palatable pleasure that you will wish lasted forever.
A deep, rich, tantalizing, robust, decadent port-style wine that pairs beautifully with rich desserts such as chocolate. We have a deep regard for Port wines and the history that surrounds them, and we bring you this extremely special and limited offering to complete any holiday celebration.
