ABOUT OUR FEBRUARY WINE CLUB WINES
Meritage, first let’s just get the pronunciation down correctly! Many people have the tendency to “Frenchify” it by pronouncing its last syllable with “zh”, as in the US pronunciation of “garage”. However, the Meritage Alliance specifically states that the word should be pronounced like the word “heritage”. Now that we have that cleared up, Meritage just looks and sounds like the marrying of flavors which is exactly what this wine is!! A portmanteau of merit and heritage!
Our 2010 Triple R Ranch Reserve Mountain Lion Meritage, hails from the High Plains vineyards of Texas. With a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, and Merlot grapes , this varietal possesses a deep ruby color with the initial aromas of dark berries, plum and fig coupled with an earthiness of clay and anise. Delectable on the palate with subtle notes of rich vanilla bean and mocha on the mid-palate. A long-lasting mouth-filled finish. This wine is a perfect pairing with a hearty steak or roasted leg of lamb. Bon Apetit and Bottoms Up!
All great wine starts with a fun story, and as not to be undersold, our 2017 Grey Ghost Pinot Grigio tells ours! Percy Walter George Ross, the most spirited sibling in his day, fled Canada on his beloved horse Percy, a beautiful Arabian, named Grey Ghost. His search for the American Dream began to unfold in Upstate New York and he began secretly building an empire on alcohol sales from his wine making skills during the prohibition period. He built a well-known speak easy frequented by local city officials! Does it get any better than this?? We think not!
Our 2017 Triple R Ranch Grey Ghost Pinot Grigio lives up to its name too! The bouquet of apples and luscious citrus display a brilliant star-bright color with a green-tinged rim. The palate bursts with tangy citrus, green apple, white peach, and mango fruit flavors. We aged our Pinot Grigio in 100% stainless steel tanks. We are delighted to share this extraordinary wine from Paso Robles California!
This fragrant Pinot Grigio serves well as an appetizer but also is a perfect pairing with seafood, salads, and poultry. Or if you are like me, just pour a glass and sip away just for the sake of sipping! Cheers!!
