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.

As Napa Valley’s third most planted grape, Napa Valley Merlot shows time and time again its potential to produce exceptional results. Napa’s vaunted combination of climate, soil and the human factor of winemaking expertise lead to big, ripe, cellar-worthy and world-class versions.

Whether made by itself in single varietal bottlings or as an important role in Bordeaux Blends, Merlot continues a prominent role in this famous region. While Cabernet typically takes the lead role, Merlot’s contribution—even at 10% to 20% or so—is significant indeed. Often described as “the flesh on Cabernet’s bones,” Merlot lends a soft, round and plush character that beautifully complements Cabernet’s linear, full-throttle structure. Its flavors of plums plus subtle herbs and mint also dovetail nicely with Cabernet’s blackberry and cassis.
