Winemaker's Notes

Offers a big mouthful of chocolate covered black raspberries, raisins, blueberry and licorice. This Merlot is rich, fat and sexy in style.

Critical Acclaim

"This serious and deeply cast Merlot leads with lovely aromas of black cherries, smoke and sweet oak, and its very rich, fully stuffed flavors meet every expectation. It is at one and the same time substantial and very well-balanced, and, while its ample tannins are not unnoticed, they in no way interfere with its insistent, layered finish. It is a head-turner now, to be sure, but it is also a wine that wants to be cellared, and, what is already a very good thing is certain to get only better for four to six years."
92 Points

"Dark red. Cassis and licorice aromas are initially a bit dulled by chocolatey oak. Supple, juicy and classically dry, showing a distinctly cool aspect to its black raspberry, currant, licorice and menthol flavors. Finishes with firm structure, dusty tannins and nice length. Elegantly styled merlot."

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Merlot

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...
