Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This medium-bodied, dry red wine delivers intense oak, vanilla and raisin aromas, followed by velvety mouth feel with complex flavors of dark red berries, dry earth and a lively spice, ending with an enjoyably long buttered toast finish.
Production Notes
The Winemaker's Reserve version of our Award-Winning Meritage represents an artful blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec grapes. Aged in First Vintage American Oak Barrels for more than 3 years, our Winemaker's Reserve Meritage is a limited production wine.
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!
Only 500 bottles were made, each bottle numbered 1-500, labeled by hand, and signed by our winemaker, Michael Pardy!
