Winemaker Joe Kidd Notes
With its classic texture and refined profile, our 2006 Napa Merlot references old-world style, balancing fresh, vibrant fruit and earthy tobacco cues. The rich aromas have a dominant spice overlay, with sweet musky notes, gingerbread spices and red stone fruits. The palate is fresh and clean, with bright cherries flanked by cedar and tobacco. A fine layer of tannins extends through the finish. Well-balanced with lean acids, this wine is ideal with food; pair it with a wide range of dishes ranging from pork and game to roasted lamb.%
