1996 Merlot, Napa



1996 Reserve Merlot, Napa Valley

Our 1996 Napa Valley Reserve Merlot is from the heart of Napa Valley, an area best known for its big Cabernet.  This Merlot fits that style…brawny, with a distinctive mouth feel and structure, like a Bordeaux from St. Emilion.  As with the best of French Merlots, this one is blended with a bit of Cabernet Franc to broaden and lengthen the finish, then aged for 3 years in French oak.  Drink it now as you would a big Cab.
