Meritage 2022 Virginia
The Meritage by 7 Lady Vineyards is a blend of the noble Bordeaux varieties - Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot - that come together to create a wine of remarkable depth and complexity. Chad & Jeff tasted numerous iterations with Ben Jordan of Commonwealth Crush to create this stunner of a Bordeaux-style wine. On the nose, this wine offers intense aromas of dark fruit, such as blackcurrant, black cherry, and plum, complemented by notes of tobacco and vanilla. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and rich, with ripe fruit flavors that are beautifully balanced by firm tannins and bright acidity. There is a lovely interplay between the different grape varieties, as the Cabernet Franc provides structure and depth, the Merlot adds softness and roundness, and the Petit Verdot contributes complexity and spice. The finish is long and satisfying, with lingering notes of dark fruit and tobacco that are a testament to the wine's exceptional quality. Our Meritage is a superb wine that showcases the best of Virginia's winemaking traditions. It pairs perfectly with grilled meats, strong cheeses, or hearty stews, and is sure to impress even the most discerning wine lover.
