Ray Falkner Talks About His 2003 Meritage

Interviews with California's Winemakers, Wine Experts, and Notable Chefs show

Summary: While vintages of wine may differ due to natural variances in the growing season climate, Falkner wines all display a similar style: full fruit flavors with a soft, clean finish. Like one wine and you will probably like many more. This consistency is achieved through meticulous winemaking by our region renown winemaker - Steve Hagata. Another reason for our great, consistent style is our willingness to continue to age wines until we believe they meet our style and are very “drinkable”. Most of our red wines age at least 3 years before public release. Located in Temecula Wine Country, Falkner also prides itself on producing great blended wines. Wine such as the Falkner Amante™ is an example of a great Super Tuscan Style red wine that blends together the great flavors of Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc. Another Falkner great blend is the Bordeaux Style Meritage which is a robust blend of estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc. If you enjoy a touch of sweetness in your wine, try our Luscious Lips red wine or our Sweet Loretta or Riesling white wines. Sweet or dry, you will be happy with any of our hand-crafted wines. www.FalknerWinery.com
