Filet Mignon – Meritage
Our winemaker's artful blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec Grapes, this Meritage was aged in American Oak Barrels for 18 months. A medium bodied, dry red with intense oak and earthy aromas, this wine delivers a velvety mouth feel and complex flavours of dark cherry, red berries and spice, with an enjoyable buttered toast finish.
The earthy and nutty flavors of this premium red blend create a sensational pair with the rich flavor of the meat.

Roast Beef & Prime Rib – Cabernet Sauvignon
Aged in American Oak Barrels, our Cabernet Sauvignon has an unmistakable texture and black currant nose. Firm tannins envelop the wine, locking in its dark cherry color. Earthy and floral tones give our “Cab Sav” complexity as it pushes forward dynamic fruit tones that are nicely balanced with oak.
This pairing is exceptional because the dense protein in both dishes will mellow out those firm tannins, allowing you to taste the flavors in the wine.
PLUS, we have a Secret Santa Cabernet Sauvignon Bundle with our handy vacuum seal that will preserve the flavors of your leftover wine!
Don’t let the stress of the holiday season bring you down! This is the time of year to spend quality time with friends and family. Appreciate and cherish every moment – even the crazy times! Our wines are meant to bring people together and create moments of nostalgia. So be the hostess with the mostest and give your guests a holiday they will remember forever!
