2016 MERLOT

NAPA VALLEY

“Celebrate the versatility of this lovely blend of small Merlot blocks from our mountain and valley estates. Bright and youthful, the nose is full of Bing cherries, fresh plum and a hint of raspberry leaf. On the more savory side, touches of almond, peppercorn and lightly toasted French oak enhance a palate balanced with acidity and long round tannins.” – Justin Carr

94 Points, Vine Pair

 “There is a wonderful balance between fruit, tannins and acidity – I mean impeccable. Welcome to slight hints of aromas that will remind you of a forest in autumn and cracked black pepper on the savory side along with a kiss of blueberry. The palate is elegant, yet powerful, with the fruit core tight and harmonious, and the tannins forming the framework.” – Keith Beavers

93 Points, Wine Enthusiast

Brawny, substantial and complex, this wine offers dusty dried herb, sage and mountain-like tannin, settling into a groove on the midpalate that finds balance and a lift of acidity. The oak is well integrated and nuanced in nutmeg and clove.” – Virginie Boone

GROWING SEASON

An early bud break, wet spring soils, and a long growing season produced a vintage with excellent quality. A wet spring started fast and rapid growth was met with average summer temperatures, which slowed development and reduced yields. The result was a moderate crop of well-concentrated fruit that ripened fully and slowly before an early harvest.
