2011 Oakville Merlot
Pure, classic Oakville.
Classically structured and displaying red inflected fruit, it opens up quickly, with savory aromas of raspberry fruit and dark plums. On the palate, the wine is super juicy, displaying super fine tannins and good sappy fruit. Lush, ripe, and feels texturally like pure Oakville - if you're familiar with the appellation, you'll know what I'm talking about the moment this wine passes your lips.
Style: Medium, Fruity
Flavors: Cherry, Graphite, Plum, Raspberry
Born out of the same partnership with the producer of Lot 344, this is our latest collaboration with one of Napa Valley's premier grape growing families. They own and farm some of the best dirt in Napa (including Oakville, Rutherford, St Helena, and Calistoga, among others), but only have a small brand of their own. We were very lucky to get our hands on some of their 2011 Oakville and Rutherford production, and so are you!
