Winemaker Notes

This 30th vintage of our Profile proprietary red blend continues to showcase the very best fruit from the harvest. The level of intensity, color and flavor in the fruit from our Schlatter Family Estate Vineyard was truly exceptional. Aromas of licorice, blackberry, raspberry and plum are interwoven with dark chocolate and black olives and highlighted by balsamic notes. The rich, round entry is the perfect entrée to this wine of significant depth and length. The weight and concentration are balanced by flavors that are equally deep and elegant with leather notes and savory herbs (thyme) on the finish. The oak is well integrated featuring supple, very fine grain tannins. Decant this wine in its youth, it will reach a nice level of complexity 8-10 years from vintage, and with proper cellaring its depth and very fine tannins will continue to develop over the next 10+ years.
Blend: 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petit Verdot, 5% Cabernet Franc

This vintage of the hearty proprietary blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc highlights the best of the harvest. It’s dense with mouth-coating red fruit and a touch of sweetness from oak. As it unwinds, more developed graphite, black olive and dried herb accents come to life. Enjoy 2023–2030. Cellar Selection

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2013 Proprietary Red Blend Profile, their Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc and usually meant to represent the flagship dry red of the winery, has a dense ruby/purple color, notes of wood char, spice box, blackberry and blueberry, this starts to kick up the level of tannin in this medium to full-bodied, long-term wine. This does require some patience, and 4-5 years is suggested. It should drink nicely for 20 or more years.

An excellent effort, the 2013 Merryvale Profile showcases how well the Napa Valley is able to produce Bordeaux-style red blends. This wine compares favorably with efforts from St. Julien and Pauillac. Its black fruit, graphite, and oaky flavors are classic in this category.(Tasted: April 27, 2017, San Francisco, CA)

Wine Spectator
Rambunctious, delivering savory, underbrush-laced earth and blackberry flavors, unfolding to reveal currant, licorice and floral scents. The tannins emerge on the grippy, grainy aftertaste. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2030.

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.
