Winemaker's Notes

Stunning Napa Valley Merlot, recently named one of Wine & Spirits Top 10 Merlots of 2003! Aromas and flavors of spice and black cherry predominate, with an appealing balance and long, velvety finish. This age worthy wine will bring enjoyment for many years.

"A fine expression of merlot: the lasting red berry fruit, the tender texture and soft, feminine grace. It not only tastes like merlot, it has some staying power. The sweet tart strawberry flavor has a charry edge of tannin, a dusty cocoa grip that lingers with the tender fruit. This should grow up well."
-W&S

Merlot(mehr-LOW) No second fiddle Merlot is coming back into its own. High popularity led to mass production, which then led to a backlash towards the variety (remember Miles in Sideways?). But passionate Merlot producers, and of course the right bank of Bordeaux, continued to produce quality versions of this grape. Merlot remains the principle grape of top chateaux in St...
