Limited Release Merlot

$75Purchase

2016

Limited Release Merlot

This Limited Release Merlot is crafted from pristine fruit sourced from the family’s estates in Yountville. Proximity to the San Pablo Bay makes these sites relatively cool, being both breezier and foggier than our up-valley vineyards. Night-picked by hand and aged in 100% French oak, this elevated expression of Merlot is both understated and elegant, showcasing red currant and blackberry flavors with hints of toffee that precede a long supple finish.

Only available for purchase online, through the winery, or for our wine club members.
