Tasting notes

Full-bodied, luscious and approachable, our 2015 Merlot is in pitch-perfect balance. The supple, voluminous entry cascades into beautifully rich and integrated flavors of ripe raspberry, black plum and baking spices. The finish leaves a lasting impression of chocolate-like tannin.

Production

Vintage Notes

An unseasonably warm spring brought early bloom and bud break. Temperatures cooled in May causing grape shatter, which resulted in uneven fruit set and reduced an already low crop yield. In reaction, vineyard crews worked even more diligently during verasion thinning to maintain even ripening of the clusters. As a result of the growing conditions, attention to detail in the vineyards, and a final pass through optical sorting equipment at the winery, the quality of the vintage is extremely high.

Viticulture

Our Napa Valley Merlot is a complex blend of several vineyards, incorporating fruit from our estate vineyards. As Merlot tends to ripen early, we selected fruit from cooler vineyard sites to enhance the vibrant and expressive character of this finicky variety. The final wine is a unique expression of the entire Napa Valley.
