COMMENTARY: Merlot expectations, while this grape variety can run the gamut from simple and sweet to complex and ultra-elegant, many wine drinkers are merely looking for a soft, smooth red wine, and that is what we have here in the 2015 Roots Run Deep Educated Guess Merlot. TASTING NOTES. This wine hits of the points of interest in a Merlot at this price point. Its aromas of ripe fruit, some dusty earth, and wood accents should make it a delicious cocktail wine with lightly-spiced meatballs. (Tasted: August 23, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

Napa Valley

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.
