Winemaker Notes

Irony 2008 Napa Valley Merlot opens with aromas of ripe raspberry and blackberry with undertones of savory dried spice, sage and hints of peppermint. Earthy flavors are layered with accents of blackberry jam, toasted oak and vanilla. Firm tannins, balanced by juicy fruit and moderate acidity guide this medium-bodied wine to a long finish. Enjoy this wine with steak, grilled lamb and hard cheeses.

A really nice Merlot, and at this price, you should run and buy some. It's dry and smooth and balanced, with lush cherry, berry, mocha and cedar flavors. So easy to drink now with steaks or chops.

Most of us didn't imagine where we would be right now. Sure, we dreamed of being firemen, astronauts, rock stars and superheroes, but life often takes you where you didn't expect it to.

My brother and I worked every harvest from the time we could ride our bikes. After college, our careers took us beyond the land our grandfather planted in 1924.

Ironically, today we are more fulfilled, working side-by-side at the family vineyard & winery. We didn't plan it or expect it, but we are enjoying this strange twist in our lives.

That's Irony - a bottle full of life's strange twists and a celebration of our family's life-long commitment to producing the finest quality wines.

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
