Big Wave - 2017
A Balanced Bordeaux Blend
Our 2017 blend consists of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Malbec, making this a Meritage style blend for the ages. A Red Meritage is a blend of two or more of the red "noble" Bordeaux varieties.
Boasting a full aroma and palate of blackberry, vanilla, black cherry, oak, and blueberry, this wine is perfect for those who enjoy a complex and hearty red. With a medium body and pleasant tannins that are not too dry, but not too subtle, this wine is balanced and provides a lovely layered journey from its jammy start to its lengthy finish. The gorgeous array of varietals used in this blend are hand picked at the peak of perfection from our vineyards in Lodi & Temecula Valley California.
This wine could easily be enjoyed on it’s own, or paired with our Red Butte Hatch Chili Cheese and Calabrese Salami. We would also recommend a Calabrese style pasta or a classic Puttanesca! Anything with a robust tangy tomato sauce, a little spice, and some form of sausage or pancetta would be perfect! Would you like us to show you how to create one of these recipes? Let us know!
