Our 2016 Bear Flat Merlot is brimming with plush aromas of bright cherry and complementary floral notes. The palate is utterly silky with layers of dark, juicy fruit and spice flavors supported by supple tannins and subtle toasted oak notes. The wine is both powerful and elegant, with a lingering finish that lasts.
This vineyard is located on the west side of the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. Well-drained loam soils gently slope toward the east, providing a nice exposure for the vines, while the cooler climate offers ideal ripening conditions.
