The warm hills of Santa Barbara County’s Santa Ynez have a strong track record for producing exemplary Cabernet and Bordeaux inspired blends, and our 2010 Amazzi Meritage is a prime example of the region at its best. Deep maroon in color, the nose is dominated by black cherry skins accented by hints of tobacco and earth. Rich cassis and raspberry flavors are complemented by notes of coffee and herbs that give way to a silky tannin from the supple Merlot fruit. Drinking beautifully today, the wine should continue to evolve nicely over the next 5-7 years.

In fact, your involvement in this project to help end the water crisis in Uganda will have certainly saved at least one life. Enjoy the wine and on behalf of thousands of people we aim to help through this project, thank you.
