Meritage Wine

Cellar No. 254 Napa Valley Meritage

/ 750ml

2013 Louis M. Martini Cellar No. 254 Meritage wine opens with a dark reddish-purple hue and aromas of ripe cherry and brown spice. Rich and medium-bodied, this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc & Petit Verdot combines mouth-filling flavors of cherry and blackberry with notes of cinnamon, licorice and sweet herbs for a balanced and well-integrated taste. Linear acidity marries with succulent fruit flavors for a long, silky finish.

Fruit for our Louis M. Martini Meritage wine was harvested and sorted by hand before stewarding into tank using gravity-feeding techniques.  After gently handling the wine as individual barrel lots for up to 21 months, we assembled the blend and sent it back to barrel for a few additional months, allowing the flavors to integrate prior to bottling. This sought-after Napa Valley Meritage wine is comprised of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot.
