Plum, black currant, and red berries with warm spice character, subtle cedar, and chocolate. Smooth and silky from start to finish.
Some people also refer to Bordeaux-style reds as “claret,” an old term that goes back to the wine trade in England. Others use the term “Meritage” (which rhymes with “heritage”), a trademarked name for registered wines that are blended from Bordeaux grape varieties.

I am looking forward to getting this brew going. Everything was shipped as advertised and in a timely manner. I will order again.
I'd love to submit a review once I receive a response to my email from many weeks ago asking for the composition (varietals and percentages of each) for this red blend.
Don't care for this in the glass even after ageing on Hungarian oak for a few weeks instead of included oak but fine for culinary use. Bottled now and we'll see if it has improved in a few months.
wow, this is finally in the bottle and like always there seem to be a half full bottle and even just out of secondary fermentation, it is completely delicious, i can't wait for it to reach a few months
My wine is still in the carboy. Hoping its a five star in about 6 months when I bottle it.
