2018 MERLOT

NAPA VALLEY

A blend of small Merlot blocks at our Mayacamas and Rutherford estate vineyards showcases the pleasant synergy of mountain and valley floor fruit.  The 2018 opens with aromas of Bing cherry, cranberry and pomegranate with the slightest hints of vanilla and cinnamon.  A very light sweet French oak profile, long soft tannins, and a luscious acidity makes this a versatile quaffer that will please most at your next social gathering. – Justin Carr

90 Points, Decanter

“Aromas of raspberry, red plum, tobacco leaf, subtle baking spices. Energetic acidity – really bright, fresh palate. Gentle, fine tannins. Long, perfumed finish.”

GROWING SEASON

The growing season was marked by a wet spring, resulting in extended flowering in some areas throughout the valley. The early summer was cool and mild allowing gradual ripening and acid development. Winemakers had to wait, watch and let berry chemistry and flavors come into balance before starting a relatively late harvest.
