WINEMAKER NOTES: Our Prince Valiant blends are inspired by American Meritage wines. Meritage first appeared in the late 1980s after a group of American vintners joined forces to create a name for New World wines blended in the tradition of Bordeaux. A Red Meritage is a blend of two or more of the red Bordeaux varieties (Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Carmenere) with no one variety making up more than 90% of the blend. With one of the hottest
vintages on record in Washington State, crafting a delicious Meritage blend full of ripe flavors and elegant aromatics was effortless. For this vintage, we decided to lean on Cabernet Sauvignon for a good structured base, while adding in both Malbec and Merlot for body and acidity.
