Wine Profile: Elms Meritage

What It Is: A blend of 55% Merlot, 41% Cabernet Franc, 4% Malbec
Description: Dry, medium bodied Bordeaux-style red
Flavor Profile: Rich aromas of berry and subtle hints of smoke in the finish

Meritage rhymes with “heritage,” and is actually a combination of the words “merit” and “heritage.” The name alone tells you that this wine is anything but ordinary. Meritage is used exclusively to describe quality, blended, Bordeaux-style wines that are produced right here in the motherland, and not in France.
