"Beautiful spices, tobacco and currants. Full-bodied, firm and silky with a tangy finish. Juicy and delicious. Candied cherries and light chocolate. Drink or hold."

"The 2015 Meritaggio is a very pretty wine. Silky, perfumed and light on its feet, the 2015 is a gorgeous wine to drink now and over the next few years. This Sangiovese-based red is decidedly feminine and lithe in feel. Bright acids bring out those qualities even further."
"A dark ruby red color offers bright and lifted aromas of wild strawberry, baked figs and red cherries with hints of candy red licorice and bay laurel. Aromatics of oak spice, lightly toasted coffee beans, toffee bar and anise/fennel seeds express themselves seamlessly. The palate has smooth polished tannins with flavors of baked cherry, plum and pomegranate. The finish is clean and elegant with noted of candied plum and cherry. Best from 2018 to 2025.
What would a ‘Meritage’ be if it showcased the Italian varietal Sangiovese? Meritaggio, of course! This Super Tuscan influenced wine showcases its Italian/French heritage, yet it proudly expresses its Napa Valley upbringing. David planted one acre of this varietal after falling in love with its brightness and vibrancy. Accessible and food friendly, this wine blends the classic Bordeaux varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc with the varietal that made the Chianti region of Italy famous. Order some Pappa al pomodoro and savor the pairing!" - Winery
