About This Item

Single-vineyard estate-grown Merlot from the vineyards surround the Robert Foley Vineyards winery facility at 2000 feet elevation on Howell Mountain.

This tiny block of Clone 3 Merlot grown in the forest on Howell Mountain delivers seductive aromas of red currant and cassis. The lush mid-palate is framed with lightly gripping tannin balanced with natural high-elevation acidity, delivering a long graceful finish. Likely the biggest Merlot you’ve tried.

Most of the production from this small lot is blended into our Napa Valley Merlot, but we set aside one barrel each year to be bottled separately as a 100% Howell Mountain Merlot in order to share the experience. Only 24 cases are bottled each vintage and this offering is a three-vintage vertical.

A note on 2017: The fires of October 8-9 of that year never threatened us on Howell Mountain. Our 2017 Merlot had been harvested a week before the fires started and was doubly safe in fermentors at the time.
