2017 TEXTBOOK Merlot Napa Valley
Our Merlot comes from two blocks located within the famed Napa Valley AVA. Each site brings unique attributes (both gravelly soils and loamy soils) that add complexity. The Oak Knoll lot brings backbone, sweet red fruit and tannins. The Oakville District Merlot lot showcases color and deeply textured, high-quality tannins. The small Cabernet Sauvignon fraction adds power and “grip”. Together, they all complete a wonderful package.
