Estancia Meritage, Paso Robles, 2006

58% cabernet sauvignon, 34% merlot, 8% petit verdot. Our 2006 Meritage was blended from a careful selection of classic Bordeaux grape varieties, grown in the rugged soils of the acclaimed Paso Robles wine country. Estancia owns 700 acres of vineyards in this unique appellation, whose extreme temperature swings create distinctive wines full of rich berry overtones. Thick, deep and bold with intense flavors of chocolate and black fruit, the 2006 Estancia Meritage showcases a ripe tannin structure enveloped in rich sweet oak and a long fruit-driven finish.
