    Winemaker Notes

    This Merlot is an occasion to showcase some of the best cool climate terroirs of Napa Valley. The fruit is drawn from the volcanic soils of Coombsville and Carneros in southern Napa where Merlot is at its best-soft, dark, spicy and fragrant. The wine opens with notes of mocha and spice typical of Merlot; the fragrance is very true to the varietal with aromas of blackberries, smoke and flowers. Initially the mouthfeel is very ample with soft texture, followed by a fresh mid palate and then ending on very soft and gentle tannins. Look for flavors of sage, black currant, pepper, anise and strawberries. This wine is very approachable thanks to a beautiful acidity and the very soft tannins. This is a Merlot for those who seek complexity and fragrance. Enjoy this wine at release and for the next 10 years.

    Red Wine

    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.
