Following a cold and soggy finish to 2008, Spring of 2009 was warm and dry with an early bud break. We had a moderate growing season causing slow ripening which led to the development of full flavors. Although harvest was slow to start in the Napa Valley, warmer temperatures in August accelerated the last days of the maturation process.
Our estate is well suited for Merlot with its moderate climate and rocky white volcanic soil. Sourced purely from estate vineyards, this 100% Merlot has a silky smooth core of ripe red and purple fruit flavors such as plum, dark cherry, and liqueur. After 18 months in French oak barrels, it presents a firm tannin structure and rich undertones of chocolocate, spices and coffee.
