Sourcing from both the Sonoma and Napa appellations allows our winemaker to blend a wine which accentuates the best of what each region has to offer. Our 2008 Merlot was heavily skewed towards Sonoma County sourcing, which is evident in the abundance of jammy mixed berries in the aroma and flavors. The 10% Napa County Merlot gave the wine some added structure to balance out the fruit. And mocha undertones from French oak gave the wine complexity and irresistible chocolate covered black cherry notes. The result is a wine that lives up to our philosophy; excellence has no boundaries.
