The Merlot grapes for our Estate Collection Napa Valley wine were harvested from two vineyards. The St. Helena fruit brings freshness and vibrancy to the wine while the fruit from Yountville adds texture. The Petit Verdot brings the two Merlot vineyards together to create a nicely balanced wine.A dark purple in the glass with dark fruit aromas and hints of mocha and baking spice. The soft and velvety palate has layers of black cherry, boysenberry, raspberry and a touch of vanilla bean. Balanced with structured and juicy tannins, this is a full-bodied wine with good acidity. The finish is long and lingers.
