Our 2006 Estate Merlot is sourced exclusively from our hand tended vineyard in the esteemed Rutherford sub-appellation of the Napa Valley. A full bodied yet elegant wine, the nose displays aromas of blackberry and raspberry on the nose, with hints of anise. On the palate the wine is full bodied and fruit forward, with additional black cherry and cassis flavors, along with just a hint of oak, with firm but well integrated tannins on the finish. Twenty-two months barrel aging in the finest French oak barrels has resulted in a rich, yet balanced Merlot, that will age gracefully for another couple of years, and pair beautifully with your favorite meat and chicken dishes.
