Arrowhead Spring Vineyards Arrowhead Red Meritage 2010

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

A blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, this wine is a big one! Big, jammy, red fruits layered with peppery spice. Chewy tannins finish off this full-bodied wine. Best with food: a summer steak, maybe slow-cooked BBQ ribs, or try it with a hearty pasta dinner. Meat sauce is a must with this one. Food pairing: red meats Flavor type: fruit-forward Body type: medium-full Finish: rich

Arrowhead Spring Vineyards is a small family winery on the Niagara Wine Trail (USA), with a focus on quality vinifera grapes and quality dry wines. We craft our wines by hand in small lots to ensure the best wine is made. The discipline and heart we put into our vineyard pours out in our wine. Our Vineyard and Winery are located in the Niagara Escarpment American Viticultural Area (AVA) wine-growing region. The hills that support our vines slope from South-East to North-West, giving us very warm afternoon sun exposure across the entire vineyard. We have 65 rows of grapes planted, divided amongst the varietals of Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc and one row of Malbec. We employ rigorous adherence to low yield practices to increase the fruit intensity. Meticulous sorting methods ensure that only the best fruit will make it into our wines. Read less

A complex and smooth wine with bright red fruit and great structure. This blend is aged 23 months in French and American oak. Pairs great with food from barbeque to pizza. 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, and 18% Cabernet Franc.
