Beaucanon Estate Merlot Napa Valley 2004

External Review:

Wine Tasting NotesOur Merlot is an example of what this much-maligned grape is capable of. We took advantage of the optimum conditions to let the fruit hang and ripen into perfection. This ripeness shows in the intense nose of vanilla, plums and vielle de prune liqueur with tones of blueberry, blackberry and brambly spice. The palate is no less sumptuous; with full flavors of red apple, dark berries and a hint of blackberry jam supported by just the right amount of toasty oak.

Situated in beautiful Napa Valley, on the historic Longwood Ranch, Beaucanon Estate reflects the proud history and experience of the de Coninck family of St. Emilion. Our vineyards provide outstanding grapes that, with the blessings of nature and the knowledgeable hands of an experienced Bordelaise winemaker, become epic and uncommon wines, expressing the intense fruit quality of California along with the balance and elegance of Bordeaux. The descendents of Jacques de Coninck are carrying forward the tradition of the family and its winemaking heritage. Louis de Coninck creates our wines with an emphasis on structure, mouth-feel and the luscious flavors of Napa Valley fruit. Like all great winemakers, Louis excels at highlighting the natural characteristics of perfectly ripe fruit, without resorting to popular techniques that emphasize tannins or alcohol. Aging takes place in carefully selected barrels and creating the final blend to produce wines of such intriguing complexity requires an intuitive and delicate touch. The result is concentrated, richly flavored and balanced wines that are pleasant and engaging when young, and only get better with maturity. Read less
