Meritage is deep ruby-red in the glass, with aromas of black currant and cassis. This seductive wine is lusciously textured with a myriad of black and purple fruit delivering a smooth, elegant finish.
Cameron Hughes 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon The Flying Winemaker Maipo: $ 10.95
This 2008 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is from the Maipo Valley in Chile. Located south of Santiago and nestled between the Andes and the coastal mountains, this area experiences warm days and cool nights that provide the ideal conditions for making Cabernet. We blended the best fruit from several vineyards and aged the wine for 10 months in French oak barrels. A luscious, stunning Cabernet with hints of eucalyptus and coconut on the finish.
Cameron Hughes 2009 Malbec The Flying Winemaker Mendoza: $ 10.95
Our Malbec has a deep violet red color. The wine has intense aromas of plum and black cherries on the palate. It is well structured, concentrated with soft tannins for a long, luscious finish. Malbec from Argentina is becoming more and more popular. The best region for Malbec is Mendoza, nestled at the foot of the Andes moutains.
Cameron Hughes 2009 Zinfandel The Flying Winemaker Lodi: $ 8.95
Lodi is to Zinfandel what Napa is to Cabernet. Lodi Zins are big wines with great depth and complexity. This wine comes from vineyards with not just old vines but ancient vines, some 100 years old. The vines are low yield but provide fruit of excellent quality. There is dark fruit on the nose and a beautiful, intense dark-berry flavor on the palate. This wine has all the depth and complexity you’d expect. It is produced for us by one of California's most respected winemakers
