Access VineSleuth Podcast via iTunes.
by Amy Gross, the VineSleuth
For this episode of the VineSleuth Podcast, I caught up with Robert Larsen of Rodney Strong while at the North American Wine Bloggers Conference in Penticton British Columbia to talk about Meritage. Rodney Strong produces Symmetry, a Meritage blend that I first tried at the Wine Bloggers Conference in 2011 and still enjoy today.
What is Meritage?
Meritage is America’s answer to the Bordeaux blend, so if you like the layered flavors in a Bordeaux and haven’t tried Meritage, you should consider giving it a try.
What You’ll Learn in the Podcast
In this podcast, Robert Larsen shares the following:
- Background on the blend
- What grape varieties are typically considered for Meritage
- What you can expect to taste in a Meritage
- How much you might expect to pay for a bottle
- The proper way to pronounce it Meritage
If you’ve been reading VineSleuth Uncorked for awhile, you know I have counted on Robert to share information on Meritage in the past. This February Rodney Strong hosted a Meritage blending class and competition for bloggers with VineSleuth.
