Punched cap fermented following de-stemming. Each lot aged in French Oak barrels 39 months prior to blending, then bottled.
This wine since its inception was designed to be more versatile when it comes to food matchups as Meritage’s are, but with an additional almost magical fourth dimension due to the added Sangiovese. It also includes the rarest of Cabernet Sauvignon clones in this Country, which is the Secret Clone, which migrated from Italy. This is the first pureCoz with Petit Verdot included in the blend. This vintage has already gathered notice with a score of 91 points prior to release!
