Merryvale’s proprietors, the Schlatter Family, are wine making traditionalists with a deep respect for Napa’s wine making legacy and a dynamic vision for the future of Napa Valley. They are committed to preserving the winery’s rich history and have sharpened their focus on Bordeaux varieties, the wines for which Napa is most renowned.
This Merlot is an occasion to showcase some of the best cool climate terroirs of Napa Valley. The fruit is drawn from the volcanic soils of Coombsville and Carneros in southern Napa where Merlot is at its best, soft, dark, spicy and fragrant. The wine opens with notes of mocha and spice typical of Merlot; the fragrance is very true to the varietal with aromas of blackberries, smoke and flowers. Initially the mouth feel is very ample with soft texture, followed by a fresh mid palate and then ending on very soft and gentle tannins. Look for flavours of sage, black currant, pepper, anise and strawberries. This wine is very approachable thanks to beautiful acidity and very soft tannins. A Merlot for those who seek complexity and fragrance.
