Winemaker's Notes:

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.

Tasting Notes:

Elegant, stylish, with depth and balance, this wine offers a bouquet of ripe plum, cassis, sage and subtle cedar. Its flavors are highlighted by wild berry, ripe cherry and a hint of olive and spice. Structurally sound, yet very approachable.
