Merryvale Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley, 2006
Robert Parker awarded this wine 89+ Points in the Wine Advocate!
Our Napa Cabernet received choice lots from our Estate Vineyard located in the hills high above St. Helena, as well as fruit from other top Napa vineyards, including Stagecoach and ToKalon.
Our 2006 Napa Cabernet is dark purple in color with aromas of violets, cassis framed by cedar and vanilla. The mouthfeel is focused with fine tannins and a long finish.
A blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, 1% Cabernet Franc from Merryvale Estate, Stagecoach, Vineyard X, Georges III, Las Amigas, ToKalon. All the fruit for this wine was handpicked and triple sorted.
This wine underwent extended maceration for increased flavor and color. The wine was aged for 25 months in 70% new French oak, with minimal handling.
