Winemaker Notes

Complex aromas of black cherry, ripe plum and mocha intertwine with subtle notes of violet and mint. This medium-bodied wine is bursting with flavors of plums, red currant and figs upfront, leading to juicy red fruit on the midpalate. The soft mid palate finishes with fine, plush tannins highlighted by a bright acidity.

COMMENTARY: The 2018 Rombauer Vineyards Merlot is on point, showing an excellent depth of fruit and balance. TASTING NOTES: This wine exhibits lovely and enticing aromas and flavors of black fruit and anise. Pair it with a well-seasoned, oven-roasted Porchetta. (Tasted: April 11, 2021, San Francisco, CA)

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.
