3 - A Monticello Wine Trail, Virginia Meritage

"3" is a Bordeaux blend of three varietals in equal one-third portions from the 2009 vintage. The Merlot was crafted by Matthieu Finot from King Family Vineyards, the Petit Verdot by Emily Pelton from Veritas Winery, and the Cabernet Franc by Jake Busching from Pollak Vineyards. With more than 30 years of combined winemaking experience, these 3 winemakers carefully selected two barrels from their cellars that they felt would highlight their colleagues' wine. The resulting product is a wine with perfect proportion and balance. This wine is a limited edition crafted in friendship and bottled to show the unity of the industry. The expansion and quality of Virginia wine is mirrored in the growth of these three young winemakers' careers.

The premiere introduction of "3" was at Pollak Vineyards on Thursday, March 3, from 3:33 p.m. to 5.30 p.m. Each winery will have 45 cases for sale at $33.33 per bottle.
