Vineyard Notes
Estancia's 2013 Meritage showcases the finest red blend from their Paso Robles vineyards. Their Keyes Canyon Vineyard, situated along the banks of the Estrella River, offers a distinctive combination of gravelly and sandy clay loam soil types for ripening the individual blocks of Bordeaux varieties. The characteristic hot days, paired with cool nights of the Paso Robles AVA, allow for an extended growing season in which flavor, skin, and seed tannin maturity can be achieved while maintaining balanced acidity. This Bordeaux blend upholds the fact that stressed vines make the best wine.
Winemaker Notes
The Meritage designation on Estancia's label assures that this wine is a blend of at least two of the red Bordeaux varieties. With this vintage of their rich and complex 2013 Meritage, they blended 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot, and 10% Petit Verdot. Cabernet Sauvignon provides a foundation of dark fruits, structure, and density; Merlot rounds out the mid-palate with luscious fruit; and Petit Verdot supports the backbone and intensifies the deep crimson hue of the wine. Estancia aged all of the wine in a combination of French and American oak barrels for 14 months.
