Atwater Vineyards Meritage 2007

External Review by Astor Wines & Spirits:

This red blend is predominantly Cabernet Franc and Merlot with a splash of Cabernet Sauvignon to round it out. You’ll be blown away by the incredibly complex milk chocolate aromas and vibrant ripe fruit that lead to a velvety palate and food friendly tannins.

Very bright, light red wine. Easy drinking. 50% Foch, 25% of each of the cab's. Marechal was planted in '78 and is very early ripening. Tasted at the winery.

Ripened on the eastern slope of Seneca Lake, this marriage of grapes is Atwater's standard-bearer. Fermented and aged in French oak, this medium-bodied wine displays notes of plum, ripe cherries, and mocha. This exquisite wine makes the perfect dinner companion with hearty entrees.
