Wine Description

(From 2010 Vintage) Merlot’s finest qualities emerge in cooler climates and clay soils, thus it is ideally suited for the Carneros region, where San Francisco Bay meets the southern end of Napa and Sonoma valleys. The Rombauer family have long been fans of the varietal’s rich, silky textures and supple tannins, as well as its versatility with food. The first Rombauer Vineyards Merlot was produced in 1983

Winemaker's Notes

1997 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon The Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas and flavors of black cherries, nutmeg, dark fruits, currants, vanilla and toasty oak.
