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.
