Our 1999 Carneros Merlot displays deep, velvety layers of dark fruit, violets and spices from grapes grown in this celebrated region at the southern tip of Napa and Sonoma Valleys.

The highly extracted, well-balanced flavors reflect both the vineyard flavor profiles and the small crop resulting from the La Niña weather pattern of the 1999 vintage.

This wine is especially delicious with roast duck or grilled lamb loin with asparagus, avocado and tomato salad.
