Joseph Carr Merlot Napa Valley 2009
I always take a classic Bordeaux style approach to my Napa Valley Merlot, employing Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon in the final cuvee. It’s all part of a mission to produce complex, yet balanced wines that echo a European sensibility and exhibit approachability upon release.
