Tasting Notes: This Merlot reflects the smooth and easy 2012 vintage with its rich and abundant dark-red fruit expression. Lush Bing cherry, plum and black raspberry notes saturate the generous aromas and deep, persistent flavors. Seductive nuances of red rose petal and chocolate-cherry truffle add complexity, while vanilla and allspice—from oak barrel aging—heighten the aromas and add warmth to the fruit-imbued finish. The plush, approachable texture of our Napa Valley Merlot makes it a versatile wine, pairing as deliciously with roasted pork loin or lamb, as with wild mushroom risotto or grilled, spice-rubbed chicken thighs.


Winemaker Notes: After the grapes were crushed, we fermented the must in stainless steel tanks until dry. Gentle pump-overs during fermentation extracted flavor, deep color and tannins from the skins. We then pressed and transferred all the wines to small oak barrels coopered with Hungarian, French and American oak to develop flavors and add nuances of vanilla and espresso. Following barrel aging, we blended the Merlot with a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon to enhance its structure.
