Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Merlot fruit sourced from select vineyards throughout Napa Valley, including our own estate vineyard surrounding the Castello in the foothills of the Diamond Mountain District.
Winemaker Notes
Winter provided a record-breaking rainfall, a welcome end to the 4 years of drought. Bloom and fruit set in May occured under ideal conditions. Summer was warm but the vines weathered the heat well and maturity moved along at a steady pace. The 2017 wine quality shows a lot of sweet fruit flavors and firm tannin structure in the reds. Looking like it will be another classic year! - Brooks Painter, Director of Winemaking
Food Pairing Notes
Excellent companion to most meat based dishes, especially roast lamb and duck. Also pairs well with flavorful cheeses such as brie, sharp cheddar, and aged Gouda.
