The long, mild growing season presented nearly textbook harvest conditions, setting the stage for excellence.
The best Bordeaux clones, three of Cabernet Sauvignon and two each of Cabernet Franc and Merlot were married with Petit Verdot through repeated tasting trials, over a period of months, maximizing complexity and bringing the four varieties into perfect balance.
Stunning – a complex expression of intense, yet nuanced, flavors are united with the ÆROS signature elegance.
The seductive scent of blackberry, ripe plum, mocha and mint anticipates dense, but graceful layers of black cherry, raspberry, cocoa and spice that coat the palate and linger, finishing with rich, toasty oak and polished, supple tannins. Hedonistic, and much too alluring to pass up now, it will develop even greater complexity in the cellar over the years to come.
Enjoying a glass of 2007 ÆROS Meritage creates an exceptional occasion in itself, but it’s also the perfect centerpiece for a celebratory meal of filet mignon or prime rib. It’s a delicious enhancement for a chocolate torte or dark chocolate soufflé cake.
Geoff recommends this special recipe, specifically designed for the 2007 ÆROS Meritage by Proprietor and in-house chef, Colleen Topper for Roasted Rack of Lamb with Blueberry Sauce.
