Tasting notes

Medium ruby in color, this wine opens with floral notes of rose petals, violets and lavender. Ripe blackberry, black cherry and vanilla round out the nose. On the palate, the wine is supple with dark fruit, baking spice, cedar, and a mineral-driven finish.

Production

Vintage Notes

The 2016 vintage marked the end of the drought years, although precipitation levels were still moderate to low. Near-perfect growing conditions continued throughout the summer with a few heat spikes that the valley is known for. Yields were a bit lower than normal, but the quality of the harvest was high. The resulting wine is rich and lush, with supple tannins and opulent, elegant finishes. Wines from 2016 are a fifth consecutive vintage of stellar Napa Valley wines.

Viticulture

Our Napa Valley Merlot is a complex blend of several vineyards, incorporating fruit from our estate vineyards. We select our fruit from a mélange of vineyards in the valley to ensure complexity of fruit and a vibrant lift of acidity. The final wine is a unique expression of the
entire Napa Valley.
