2010 Merlot, Napa Valley

2010 Merlot, Napa Valley

2010 Merlot

In 2010, higher than average rainfall pushed back budbreak, fruit-set, and veraison by about two weeks, and cooler summer temperatures ensured a harvest that was significantly later than normal. And while late season heat spikes followed by a consistent Indian Summer meant more work in the vineyard, the unusual conditions ultimately gave us great color and flavor development across the board.

This is a round, juicy Merlot with tannins that are supple but pronounced—a solidly built wine that is drinkable and fruit forward now but will also fare well with age. The nose is full of ripe blackberry and plum, and more bright berries and currants on the palate along with hints of anise, cocoa and vanilla bean.
