Our Somersville Cellars 2016 Red Meritage was produced in the Lodi appellation of California. This young wine has a dark, deep ruby red color. Powerful flavors of black cherry, blueberry and prune are at the start. Later, notes of tobacco, leather and roasted almonds develop. The mouthfeel is long and smooth, with many layers of tannins slowly coming forward all over the palate. This wine showcases lush fruit and a great length.
The balance of this wine, provided by the acidity, will pair well with a wide range of dishes like grilled or roasted turkey, chicken, roast beef, beef tenderloin or grilled Ribeye steak. Try it with the featured recipe: Bistro Beef Tenderloin.
With every purchase of this wine, $1 will be donated to help support the immediate recovery and rebuilding efforts for all hurricane victims in Houston, Florida and Puerto Rico. Contributions will be given to the following charitable organizations: Direct Relief, United Way of Greater Houston, Houston Food Bank and Samaritan’s Purse.
