 Product Description

The fruit that serves as the backbone for our 2014 Napa Valley Merlot comes from an exciting estate vineyard at the southern end of the Napa Valley that we call the Suscol Springs Vineyard. It is here that our vines struggle in rocky Hambright outcrop soils planted on steep hillsides with a southern exposure. The challenge of growing here, however, pays dividends in fruit quality. These blocks produce grapes with distinctive, true-to-varietal flavors, bright acidity, and a muscular structure that is ideal for aging.

The 2014 vintage is notable for its great weather, which resulted in even ripening and concentrated varietal fruit flavors.

Tasting Notes & Food Pairings - Fragrant ripe black cherry, red plum and blackberry aromas, complemented by whiffs of black tea, oak and chocolate, introduce this bold, beautifully structured merlot. Rich and plump on the palate with lush cherry, plum and red currant flavors framed by firm, yet fine-grained tannins, it culminates in a long finish accented by zesty tea-leaf spice tones. Delicious now, this youthful merlot will benefit from another 5-7 years aging.

94% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon
