Winemaker's Notes

A blend of 95% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Our 2004 Napa Valley Merlot is now full and luscious, in a sense the most classic style for Napa Valley. This wine is destined to be a crowd-pleaser, offering a juicy, rich mouth-feel and varietally true black fruits. Yet the tannins are round and mouth filling, so the resulting wine on the palate is still balanced. It answers firmly that a rich wine can be complex, nuanced and elegant.

"The 2004 Merlot Carneros (which includes small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc) exhibits more depth and concentration. Its bouquet reveals aromas of chocolate, coffee beans, black currants, and sweet cherries. With excellent texture and medium to full body, it should keep for 7-8 years." 88 Points

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

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...
