Merlot Unfiltered Napa Valley 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Sattes Rubin mit purpur Reflexen. Vielschichtiges Fruchtbouquett an Kirschkuchen und Waldbeermarmelade erinnernd, auch Speckpflaumen, Portweinbirnen und Nussschokolade, eines der schönsten Nasenbilder überhaupt, bereits vor dem ersten Schluck ein Hochgenuss. Beeindruckende Gaumenfülle und wiederum verschwenderische Fruchtkomplexe, nun auch Preiselbeeren, Maulbeeren und Zedernholz, schwarzer Pfeffer in der Portweinartigen Mitte, perfekte Balance auf höchstem Niveau, Brombeeren und Cassis bis weit über den letzten Schluck hinaus.

Each Newton Vineyard wine embodies the founders’ vision to rise above the conventions of the valley in pursuit of unmatched quality. Crafted with an uncompromising commitment to true terroir expression, the Newton style is noted for its unadulterated richness and purity of fruit. The single square mile of hillside pioneered by the Newtons in 1977 is an impressive site, with expansive vistas of Napa Valley and beyond. The terraced mountain estate has 120 acres planted at elevations ranging from 500 to 1,600 feet above sea level. Each of the 112 distinctive vineyard blocks is planted to a specific varietal – Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon or Petit Verdot. These parcels reflect distinct soil types, sun exposures and individual microclimates. The blocks are fermented separately to contribute complexity to the final blended wine. As with the red varietals, the diverse Chardonnay blocks are hand-picked and vinified separately, providing the winemaker with a rich palette from which to choose when blending Newton Vineyard wines. The blocks are set among the native vegetation to preserve the ecosystem of the hillside. Recognized as an American pioneer of unfiltered wines, Newton Vineyard is dedicated to working in harmony with nature to transform grapes of uncompromised quality into wines of distinctive character. Based on an old-world style, Newton’s winemaking techniques include natural fermentation and bottling without filtration. These purist traditions preserve the natural depth of flavor, bouquet and structure. Read less

Pflaumige Nase mit viel Brombeeren und schwarzem Holunder, Lakritze und dunkle Schokolade. Komplexer Gaumen, samtige Tannine, eingebunden in fülliges Extrakt, lang anhaltendes Finale.
