Cakebread Cellars, Merlot, Napa Valley, California 2016
We select the majority of Napa merlot grapes for this wine from our hilly Suscol Springs Vineyard in the cool reaches of southeastern Napa, and supplement the blend with grapes from our other estate ranches. The fruit is cold-soaked for full extraction of color, flavor and tannins before primary fermentation, and the wine ages in French oak barrels both before and after blending.
