(From 2000 Vintage) This wine starts off with dark, funky earth scents that blend well with coffee and medicinal notes. The palate is full of rich, red fruit, accented by arugala and dark chocolate. Overall, a hint lean with cherry and cinnamon lingering on the long finish.
(From 2012 Vintage) With its temperate weather and lengthy hang time, the 2012 growing season was ideal for our style of Merlot, yielding a wine that combines exceptional structure and depth with velvety tannins and alluring fruit. From its aromas of Santa Rosa plum, crème de cassis, violet and Herbes de Provence to its enticing flavors of olallieberry, sticky toffee and vanilla bean, this is a complex and compelling expression of Napa Valley Merlot.
