This Merlot is sourced from the oldest family-owned winery in Napa Valley. The grapes in this wine come from the Chiles Valley AVA in Napa, with a climate similar to the Bordeaux region of France. We're proud to be able to offer this limited production wine!
The grapes were harvested by hand, destemmed and sorted, and fermented in small bins. Fermentation lasted approximately eight days, with 2-3 hand punchdowns daily. The grapes were pressed upon dryness, and aged for 24 months in 1/3 new French oak and 2/3 neutral oak barrels. The barrels were then blended, which softened the tannins and lifted the aromas and flavors.
