This marriage of Merlot, Cab, Cab Franc, and Malbec is sourced from a variety of producers with much of the wine coming from Rutherford District producers in Napa Valley. We got some smokin' pricing primarily because of the Merlot, which, due to the "Sideways Movie" effect, is very oversupplied right now and dynamite juice is available to us at, let's say, rather advantageous prices. Of course, we pass the savings to you (otherwise this wine would be another couple of bucks a bottle). The main component for this blend comes from a mid-sized winery in Napa that specializes in Merlot and makes really beautiful stuff with all the fixin's, pretty French oak and juicy fruit. The remaining components are each sourced from different high-end producers and could easily stand on their own.
