Tasting Notes
A medium-bodied dry red with intense oak and vanilla aromas, this wine delivers a velvety mouth feel and complex flavors of dark cherry, red berries and spice, with an enjoyable buttered toast finish.
Ratings
PLATINUM, 95 PTS: 2016 Critics Challenge International Wine Competition (2013 vintage) "...presenting itself like fine Bordeaux. Blackberry, vanilla, black cherry, dry earth and lively spice and chocolate mix well together on a bright palate that intensifies in the long finish. Nicely done!" - Rich Cook Mar 29, 2016

Production Notes
This premium Meritage represents our winemaker's artful blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (39%), Merlot (37%), and Malbec (24%) grapes, this Meritage was aged in first Vintage American Oak Barrels for more than 2 years.
Winemaker Notes
With the creation of this wine, Adirondack Winery became a proud member of the National Meritage Alliance. Meritage is an invented word that combines "merit" and "heritage" - reflecting the quality of the grapes and the ancient art of blending wine. Meritage wines are handcrafted red or white wines blended from the "noble" Bordeaux grape varieties. A Meritage wine is considered to be the very best of the vintage. Blending is the personal expression of the winemaker's vision, a combination of skill and intuition that unites the elements of the winemaking process to create a work of art. It is the magic that gifted winemakers use to create wines of intrigue and enchantment.
Food Pairing Notes
While we love savoring this wine on its own, our Meritage makes a great match for a charred burger with gruyere cheese, mushrooms and onions. Think rich meats with earthy, nutty flavors and you will have an excellent meal. Wood-fired pizza and tomato-based pasta dishes with rich spices or meat sauces also pair well!
