Reported as "One of the best Napa Merlots" by Wine Enthusiast Magazine. We would agree, another great addition to our Trefethen selection.
Record-breaking winter rains filled our reservoirs and recharged the soil. Spring and early summer were warm, leading to very strong growth in the vines. The rest of the summer was more typical with warm days and cool nights, providing perfect conditions for the developing grapes. Our yields for the season were slightly lower than average and the resulting wines are classic.

Beverage Testing Institute
“Lovely balance and firmness to this red with blackberry, ash, black-olive and walnut aromas and flavors. It’s medium-to-full-bodied with a tight tannin backbone and a fresh finish. Drink or hold.” – January 2021
Connoisseurs’ Guide to California Wine
“Medium ruby color; attractive, ripe, spicy, dark cherry and raspberry fruit aroma with hints of baking spices, black pepper, and cocoa powder; full body; red fruit flavors with spicy notes, bright acidity, a hint of dark chocolate, and pleasing richness in the elegant mouthfeel; medium-full to full tannin; lingering aftertaste. Very enjoyable to drink now, though best to bottle age for several more years.” – January 2021
Decanter World Wine Awards
“Fresh and poised, with sweet tobacco notes to jammy red and dark fruits, prunes and chocolate. Complexity and textural wealth.” – January 2020
