Winemaker's Notes:

The 2007 Houdini Merlot is a robust example of fully ripe Merlot fruit grown in Napa Valley's expressive ground zero, Oakville. Aged in French oak for 19 months and bottle aged a full year before release, this wine brings together the components of soil, sun, fruit and time. Big in body, full flavored and a great example of Napa Valley's best in Merlot.

2007 was a classic growing season in Oakville, as dark fruit flavors had ample time to develop fully. The resultant Bordeaux style wine expresses dark berry, deep cherry, mocha and cola notes.

My Notes:

About Houdini:

Houdini wines are produced in the beautiful Napa Valley Wine Country which is best known for its dedication to making quality wines that please the palate and awaken the senses. Although a variety of grapes are grown in California, Napa Valley is best known for its Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay wines. We carefully select prime locations to ensure both the quality and the mouth feel of the wine meet our high standards. Houdini prides itself in taking great care at delivering a flavorful and rich wine experience.
