The 2017 Riesling reveals ripe aromas and flavors of apple and lime with subtle notes of peach and melon. The wine is crisp and well balanced with an off-dry style. Pair this fruit-driven, food-friendly wine with fresh pear and apple slices, hard cheeses with nuts, whitefish and other seafood dishes with low to moderate oil content, or spicy Thai cuisine.
The 2016 Merlot opens with plum, wild strawberry, cherry, cinnamon, vanilla, and hits of cocoa. The palate is rich and supple with black cherry, vanilla, spicy oak, and black pepper flavors, and vanilla spice on the finish. Pair with braised short ribs, roast pork, or grilled salmon.
The 2015 vintage of Genesis Meritage captures the best qualities of its components: Merlot brings black cherry fruit and a supple quality to the wine, while Malbec adds full-bodied complexity. Cabernet Sauvignon gives the wine its structure, and Petit Verdot contributes dense, dark fruit. Flavors are of rich black cherry, spicy oak, and a touch of orange zest, with vanilla spice on the finish. Tannins are moderate. Serve with braised short ribs, rosemary-herbed lamb chops, or grilled T-bone steak
