2020 E.J. Church MERLOT

Napa Valley

“Nestled on the hillside just behind the winery, our small Merlot block is routinely among the first grapes harvested from the Mountain Estate.  The 2020 opens with black cherry, dried cranberry, plum, and a touch of cardamom on the nose. A vibrant acidity and gentle tannins support more lush stone fruit with hints of fresh olive, vanilla, and cedar on the palate. This pairs deliciously with lamb meatballs, a winter stew, or a hearty heirloom tomato salad.” – Justin Carr

 
93 Points, James Suckling

Beautiful mountain fruit with hints of chocolate and blueberries. Medium-bodied, crunchy, and fresh with brightness. Lovely acidity.” – James Suckling

GROWING SEASON

Ideal conditions at the beginning of the growing season with mild temperatures led to an early bud break. The below-average rainfall resulted in smaller, evenly developed clusters with more concentrated flavors. The warm summer gave an early August harvest kickoff, where we had normal yields
and exceptional fruit quality
