Meritage wines from California are an American creation. The flavor and aroma are determined in large part by the percentage of each grape blended into the batch of wine. Contributing factors include the AVA, lattitude of the vineyard, the year, soil, and climate conditions. Taste a bottle of Meritage and report on these criteria when sharing your findings with the class. Remember to use Zraly’s 60 Second Wine Expert methodology when reporting your findings.
