We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Flora's favorite, our Napa Valley Merlot is a soft, supple red wine made to open in the near term. The 2013 bears a red fruit bouquet of Bing cherry and red currant mixed with white chocolate, light cedar and acacia flowers. The mouth has a dense core of purple fruit, reminiscent of kirsch liqueur, and the wine's velvety tannins melt away on a sweet vanilla note. This wine is wonderful on its own - the way Flora enjoyed it - or it can be paired with a variety of dishes. Its forceful personality, bolstered by the streak of Malbec, make it a good match for almost anything a Cabernet would be paired with, such as steak au poivre, yet the wine's tannin structure is soft enough to pair with classic chicken piccata or a creamy butternut squash soup.

Wine SpectatorFresh and lively, this is the sort of Merlot that made the wine so popular in California. Aromas of red currant and spicy cinnamon lead to supple, rich flavors of black cherry, toffee and grilled herb. Drink now through 2022. 4,722 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastWith just a handful of Malbec, this wine takes time to open before becoming juicy, herbal and elegant, expressive in tobacco and black tea. The tannins fine and dry.
