    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2007 Houdini Merlot is a robust example of fully ripe Merlot fruit grown in Napa Valley's expressive ground zero, Oakville. Aged in French oak for 19 months and bottle aged a full year before release, this wine brings together the components of soil, sun, fruit and time. Big in body, full flavored and a great example of Napa Valley's best in Merlot.

    2007 was a classic growing season in Oakville, as dark fruit flavors had ample time to develop fully. The resultant Bordeaux style wine expresses dark berry, deep cherry, mocha and cola notes.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Shows tons of extracted cherry, blackberry and cassis flavor, wrapped into sturdy tannins and balanced with fine acidity. Bone dry, too, with a long, spicy finish. A good, sweetly oaky Merlot...

    A BIG Merlot with sharp and distinct essences. Just a small step from from brilliant, but given the continuing mediocrity in merlot country, this one is worth a taste.
