Vintage

Vintage 2012 was considered 'perfect' by the prognosticators as soon as the last grapes were making their way to the
wineries. It was perfect in the sense that quality and quantity benefited both grower and winemaker. The weather
cooperated throughout all critical parts of the growing season to produce beautifully ripe and flavorful fruit.

Vinification

The Foley Johnson Estate Meritage is grown on loamy soils of gravel, clay, and sand which helps provide ample
drainage and lessen the vigor of foliage growth. These ideal growing conditions allow our Bordeaux varietals to
reach full maturity on the vine without taking on the green leafy taste of under-ripened fruit. The grapes were
harvested between September 19th through October 19th, 2012 under clear night skies. The wine went through
100% malolactic fermentation and was racked four times throughout the barreling process. After 18 months of
aging in new and used French Oak barrels (30% new) the wine was bottled July 16, 2014.
