Our Merlot is an occasion to showcase some of the best cool climate terroirs of Napa Valley. The fruit is drawn primarily from the volcanic soils of Coombsville and Carneros in southern Napa where Merlot is at its best-soft, dark, spicy and fragrant. The wine opens with notes of mocha and spices typical of Merlot. The aroma is true to the varietal with tones of blackberries, earth and flowers. The mouthfeel is very ample, with soft texture, a fresh mid-palate, and finishes with very soft and gentle tannins. This wine is very approachable thanks to a beautiful acidity and texture- a wine for wine lovers that look for complexity and fragrance.

The 2018 Merlot (there's a splash of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon) has a lively, attractive nose of ripe blue and black fruits as well as plenty of chocolate and leafy herb-like nuances. Medium to full-bodied, nicely textured, and balanced, this is a rock-solid, undeniably delicious Merlot that's going to drink well for 5-7 years or so.
