Tasting Notes

Our Napa Valley Merlot displays notes of dark fruit, including blackberry, black currant and plum, along with leather interwoven with floral and chocolate notes. The mouthfeel is dense and ripe with a broad entry followed by rich and velvety tannins. A refreshing acidity enhances the finish of this wine. This 2012 Merlot is a wine that exemplifies balance, ripeness and elegance.

Vineyard Notes

Sourced mostly from the cooler, southern part of the Napa Valley, and including fruit from Farella Park, Stagecoach, Stanton, and Kenefick vineyards.

Production Notes

The fruit was hand-picked and hand-sorted before undergoing an extended cold soak, with two weeks on the skins. After primary fermentation and native malolactic fermentation, the wine was aged for 18 months in French oak (30% new) and racked just twice before being bottled unfined and unfiltered.
