Intriguing nuances of dark chocolate and dried Marasca cherries layer the ripe plum and blackberry notes of our Napa Valley Merlot. As you swirl the wine, you’ll also discover hints of black mission fig and licorice. On the palate, the textured flavors are plush and graceful, yet with ample structure. A year of aging in oak barrels sourced from three different counties added hints of sweet oak spices and espresso.

WINEMAKER'S NOTE

After the grapes were crushed, we fermented the must in stainless-steel tanks until dry. Gentle pump-overs during fermentation extracted flavor, deep color and tannins from the skins. We then pressed and transferred all the wines to small oak barrels coopered with Hungarian, American and French oak to develop and integrate flavors. Following barrel aging, we blended the Merlot with a small amount of complementary varieties to enhance its structure.
