About This Item

All Merlot but more wine than a lot of Cabernets! Very ripe aromas of black currant and a trace of cedar introduce the first taste, which floods the middle with expansive ripe black fruit flavors from our Valley Floor vineyards. The gently gripping tannin of our Howell Mountain fruit coats the palate and lingers in the long finish. This wine gracefully balances the characters of the two AVAs.

 

I produced my first commercial Merlot in the 1976 vintage when it was about as well-known as Charbono is today. After several years of trying to convince folks to give it a try, its popularity grew and eventually snowballed.

Of course, Bordeaux producers have worked with this grape variety for many years and it is the noble variety of the Cabernet family on the right bank of that region. Like its Cabernet cousin, Merlot’s response to well-drained soils is profound expression and firm structure in the wines grown there.
