Merriam Vineyards wines are inspired by traditional French styles of farming and winemaking. Our commitment to delivering vineyard-designated wines allows us the opportunity to create unique wines that will live up to their old world inspiration. Much of this dedication is evident in the fields and on the vines, where a commitment to sustainable farming practices and environmental stewardship thrives in the form of water reclamation and composting systems for both grape growing and winemaking. Our award winning wines, inspired by Bordeaux and Burgundy styles, serve as a testament to our inspiration and ideals as grower and winemaker.
2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Windacre Vineyard

Silver Medal - 2019 SFIWC
"The medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Windacre Vineyard offers notions of freshly crushed black currants, blackberries and bay leaves with touches of pencil lead, lavender and dark chocolate. Full-bodied with firm, grainy tannins and a lively line supporting the muscular black fruit, it finishes long with an herbal lift."
