2005 Meritage, Napa Valley, Trio Vineyard



Napa Valley

Great wines don’t just happen. They are the result of lifetimes of experience and passion. Will Nord and his family have been growing grapes in Napa Valley for thirty years. The Trio Vineyard, a field blend of five Bordeaux varietals, is at the cutting edge of modern viticultural practices.  To this we add our four decades of winemaking talent, education and experimentation. Our friends say its a Napa wine made by a Sonoma Winemaker. This means the wine is more elegant, more reserved, compared to the more tannic, more aggressive Napa counterparts.
