(From 2013 Vintage) Excite your senses with…aromas of toasty baking spices, vanilla, malt and fresh, ripe plums alongside alluring flavors of warm berry compote, juicy blueberry, blackberry, cherry, and a hint of dark chocolate and toffee.
The Oak Knoll district of Napa Valley is an ideal location for cultivating Merlot grapes. Warm days and cool morning fog, rich and well-drained soils all contribute to the unique growing climate and allow for an extended growing season. The fruit for our 2010 Napa Valley Merlot was hand selected from vineyards primarily in the Oak Knoll district. Merlot is the most planted varietal in Oak Knoll and the fruit is elegant, complex and balanced.
