Rutherford Ranch Merlot
The long, warm days of the Napa Valley create delicious, concentrated fruit. The cool nights help preserve balance, acidity and the aromatic qualities. The 2012 vintage has been described as a nearly perfect growing season. Heavy spring rains delayed budbreak which was followed by a long stretch of warm weather. This resulted in an abundant crop of excellent quality fruit. This wine is sourced from vineyards in Rutherford, Oakville as well as others throughout the Napa Valley, The winemaking team ages our Merlot for a minimum of 12 months in French and American oak barrels. Enjoy this wine with lamb dishes, hearty beef or vegetable lasagna. Also delicious with roast turkey or blackened fish.
