Merryvale Reserve Chardonnay

Winemakers Notes: This blend is entirely composed of wine made from
flavorful and low-yielding Dijon clones.  It was carefully assembled from our
best lots from the cool Carneros viticultural area in Napa and Sonoma.  The
flavor of the fruit is complemented by the toasty oak spice, with richness and
complexity from mative yeast fermentation in new French oak barrels.
Cellaring: Three years from release to reach maturity, with a plateau for
another five years after that.
Production: 2,200 cases
$29.50 per bottle

Merryvale Reserve Merlot

Winemakers Notes: The core if the 2002 Reserve Merlot blend consists of
several lots from the Carneros region of Napa Valley as well as a nice one from
just south of Yountville, both in the cooler, fog influenced southern end of the
valley.  We included a good helping of Cabernet Sauvignon to add some
complexity and dimension to the wine's structure.  A great vintage, the wines
from 2002 have a rich, concentrated structure and dark fruit flavors.
Cellaring: This wine should develope complexity with five years in the bottle
and hold for at least five years after that.
Production: 3,500 cases
$45.00 per bottle
$40.50 12+ Mix & Match
Merryvale Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

Winemakers Notes: The 2002 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon was blended from
a number of vineyards throughtout the central and southern Napa Valley.  The
growing season was relatively normal until the middle of September when torrid
heat pushed ripening along rapidly.  A few barrels of our best Merlot lots went
into the blend to round out the mouthfeel.  The wine is very dense and
concentrated.
Cellaring: This wine should develope complexity with five years in the bottle
and hold for at least five years after that.
Production: 4,500 cases
$39.00 per bottle
$35.10 12+ Mix & Match
Merryvale Profile

Winemakers Notes: Profile is a blend of many of our finest lots of Cabernet
Sauvignon, Marlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, chosen for their
concentration, depth of flavor and fine tannin structure.  This wine was aged in
mostly new French oak chateau ferre barrels and bottled unfined and unfiltered.
 It is opulently structured and very dark.
Cellaring: This wine should develope complexity with up to ten years in the
bottle and hold for many years after that.
Production: 3,050 cases
$95.00 per bottle
$85.50 12+ Mix & Match

Merryvale Silhouette Chardonnay

Winemakers Notes: Aromas of pear, lemon and vanilla bean are
interwoven with crème brûlée and toasted oak.  The wine has a
dense, complex and luxurious mouthfeel with a finish that continues
on for minutes. Silhouette will develop in the bottle for the next 5
years. Our favorite pairings include broiled lobster with drawn butter
and a selection of your favorite caviar.
