History Since 1988, Jade Mountain has been a pioneer in the production of age-worthy Rhône-style California wines. The winery was founded with the belief that carefully chosen California vineyard sites planted to Rhône grape varieties can achieve quality on-par with the best from the Rhône region in France. Jade Mountain creates world-class wines by pushing the limits of grape-growing and winemaking for the extract, flavor and richness that comes with the California sun and its individual expressions of Rhône varietals. Terroir Only a few locations in California have the perfect combination of soil and climate for growing world-class Syrah. Paras Vineyard sits at the 1,200-foot elevation on the eastern side of rocky Mount Veeder, overlooking the Napa Valley. The steep, terraced shale slopes are ideal for Syrah because of the cool, yet sun-drenched, climate and low-vigor soils. The vineyard is farmed terrace by terrace, with each row individually cared for. This same care is used at each of the vineyards from which we source grapes for Jade Mountain's wines. The grapes are picked by hand, then fermented in small lots to retain their unique character. All of these factors result in meager production, but high-quality wine Read less

Very nice. Typical characteristic Merlot flavors. At this price point, would definitely buy again. Great wine for not having to over think it. Enjoy!

Great value.... hints of mint and eucalyptus along with more overt plum. Really drinks well for a $9 wine.

Smooth and silky, the 2007 Jade Mountain Merlot is densely packed with heady aromas of ripe dark fruit laced with spice. Generous black cherry and plum flavors mingle with caramel notes and hints of Asian five-spice and cinnamon. The expansive flavors and rich texture are well structured with firm, yet approachable, tannins. Nuances of oak spices linger on the long, fruit-imbued finish. We credit the long, slow ripening period of the 2007 vintage for our Merlot's exceptionally deep fruit flavors, supple tannins and elegant balance. - Winery
