Somersville Cellars 2020 Lodi Red Meritage
Red Meritage is a wine that blends the traditional varietals of the Bordeaux Appellation in France.
With our 2020 Red Meritage, we blended 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc and 8% Petit Verdot, all of which were sustainably grown in Lodi. These three varietals bring their own twist to the tannins, color and structure. This young, vigorous dry red blend has a deep purple robe. The nose is intense with dark fruit like blackberry, cherry and black currant. A second nose of mature characters of leather, tobacco and cigar box is also perceptible. This wine is built for longevity and will start displaying more mature characters throughout its aging. The mouth has a light, fruity attack that is quickly overpowered by the tannins. This wine has a lot of depth, balance and a silky finish.
