Grapes: Merlot 83%, Cabernet Sauvignon 12%, Petit Verdot 5%

Region: USA / California / Napa Valley

Type: Medium-bodied red wine

Winemaking:
Vineyard: The grapes are grown in estate-owned and grower-partner vineyards on the Napa side of Carneros, where the clay soils are similar to those of Bordeaux's Right Bank. The cool climate allows the thin-skinned grapes to gradually develop flavor and tannin while retaining natural acidity.
Vinification: The grapes are carefully destemmed and optically sorted to ensure only perfect fruit made it into the wine. A cold soak extracts color and flavor. About 25% of the wine is barrel-fermented to provide a richer, more textured palate. The wine is gently basket-pressed before being racked to French Oak barrels for aging.

Tasting Notes:
Color: Dark ruby red with orange rim.
Nose: Aromas of fresh, ripe blueberries, ripe plum and black currant intertwine with notes of cedar, vanilla and pie crust.
Palate: This medium-bodied wine is plush with flavors of plums, blueberries and figs upfront, leading to juicy red fruit on the midpalate.

Food pairing: Beef, lamb, veal.
