Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2007 Merlot captures Napa Valley's diverse terroir with complex layers of crushed summer berries, ripe plum, chocolate and spice. Bright acidity lifts the flavors, while supple tannins—enhanced by Cabernet Sauvignon—add structure and a plush mouthfeel. From the aromas through the smooth, lingering finish, vanilla-oak nuances mingle with the rich, dark-fruit expression. Grilled or roasted pork, duck, turkey, lamb and beef, especially if rubbed with sweet spices or juniper berries, make perfect pairings with our Merlot.

About Beaulieu Vineyard:

The deep roots of Beaulieu Vineyard were first planted back in 1900, when founder Georges de Latour noticed similarities with his native Bordeaux and declared the Napa Valley ideal for winemaking. Planting vineyards in Rutherford with grafted, phylloxera-resistent French vines, the Cabernet Sauvignon that de Latour crafted from these grapes gave the world a taste of California's promise as a world-class winemaking region. In 1938, de Latour hired the young Russian-French enologist, Andre Tchelistcheff. Today, Beaulieu continues to turn to innovative practices. Most recently, they completed a new state-of-the-art winery within one of their original buildings. The Georges de Latour Private Reserve Winery utilizes the latest technology in combination with time-honored traditions for the production of this exceptional wine.
