Lyeth was one of the first wineries in California to pursue the unique complexity and composition achieved by the marriage of Cabernet Sauvignon with the other major Bordeaux varieties, now known as the Meritage style. Lyeth became a founding member of the Meritage Association in 1988, helping to define Meritage wines. The term "Meritage" (pronounced like "heritage") is a combination of the words "merit" and "heritage". Today Lyeth continues the tradition of blending family and tradition in its wines.
The first California red wine blend in Lyeth’s history, Fleur de Lyeth remains true to Lyeth’s roots of exceptional blends with consistently high quality at a tremendous value. This wine is a proprietary blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and other Bordeaux varietals and is crafted in the noble winemaking tradition of unifying the best characteristics of multiple grape varieties to produce a harmonious wine with balanced complexity.
