    Winemaker's Notes:

    Our 2009 Merlot shows its depth with a rich garnet color. Aromas of juicy boysenberries and cherry pie fill the glass. Crème brùlée and brown sugar notes from oak aging complement the ripe berry aromas. Mountain fruit characteristics show in the intensity of the fruit flavors. The entry enjoys sweet berry notes of raspberry and cherry with a finish of jammy boysenberry preserves. The oak notes of chocolate and wood smoke pair with and complement the rich fruit layers. Refined tannins support this balanced wine that doesn't show the typical alcohol component found in many Merlots. As the wine develops in the glass, one may enjoy ongoing berry notes, a touch of allspice evolving in the middle, while the wine continues to lengthen on the finish. Smooth, silky and profound berry flavors confirm this wine's birthplace as Napa Valley.

    Blend: 88% Merlot, 6% Syrah, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Petite Verdot

    Critical Acclaim:

    One of the best Merlot values on the market. With rich, delicious cherry, anise and sandalwood flavors, wrapped into softly smooth tannins, it’s just what a California Merlot should be.

    I liked this wine very much. It was good enough to have more than one glass at a sitting. Good buy.
