Just Released: 2006 Napa Valley Merlot

by David on April 13, 2009

Better stop by the tasting room! We’ve just released our 2006 Merlot and it’s sure to put a smile on your face. About 1/2 the grapes were grown on our estate right here at the winery. This mid-valley location allows for plenty of ripeness and full, opulent flavors. The rest of the fruit came from the Carneros, where it’s a bit cooler, so the component is a little leaner and higher in acid, which, besides being delicious, brings elegance to the the total blend and helps it comply with our ever present “food-friendly” requirement. ;-)

Speaking of food, a springtime release makes me hungry for Spring Lamb! Colleen put together a delicious recipe that has springtime written all over it – lots of herbs and even some fresh lavender! So, better fire up the grill for Spring Lamb with Honey-Thyme Root Vegetables and be sure to try it with our hot off the presses, 2006 Merlot!
