Jeff Gordon Cellars:
Jeff Gordon Collection wines are produced by Jeff Gordon Cellars in Calistoga, California by winemaker August "Joe" Briggs. August Briggs Winery is a family-owned winery in Napa Valley dedicated to producing very limited quantities of great wines from carefully selected vineyards across California’s North Coast counties.

Tasting Notes:

Deep scarlet in color, the 2005 Merlot is luscious and velvety exhibiting black cherries and red licorice on the nose. Dried cranberry, earth, and cedar tones intertwine on the palate, the wine is rounded off with hints of dark chocolate and finishes with a strong backbone of acidity. The wine shows well after some decanting and will just get better over the next several years.

249 cases produced.
