Winemaker's Notes

The 2005 Napa Valley Merlot is wonderful reminder that this varietal is a structured and elegant wine with delicately bold fruit flavors. St. Supéry's Merlot is a balanced wine with aromas of plum and subtle spice. This Napa Valley Merlot is a compliment to a wide array of foods.

Critical Acclaim

"Smooth and soft with fig scents and plum flavors, this wine has reached a complex maturity, layering hints of game and wild mushrooms. What's most intriguing is the weightlessness of the finish, the gentleness of the variety managed with discretion. Ready for grilled flank steak."
