Winemaker Notes

#1 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2017

In Napa Valley, the 2014 growing season delivered a third exceptional vintage in a row, yielding wines with ideal concentration, elegant tannins and lovely varietal flavors.

This classic expression of Three Palms Vineyard Merlot displays beautiful layers of dense dark red fruit, cedar, graphite and cream, as well as hints of wet river rock. Pure and polished on the palate, the rich flavors are underscored by firm, structured tannins and subtle sweet oak that will ensure that this stunning Merlot ages wonderfully for years to come.

Critical Acclaim

Wine Spectator
A powerful red, with concentrated flavors of red plum, cherry and boysenberry that are layered with plenty of rich spice and mineral accents. Touches of slate and cardamom make for a complex finish. Drink now through 2023.
Wine Enthusiast
Soft and layered, this perennially impressive vineyard-designate speaks highly of the variety, showing balanced offerings of plum, dark cherry, leather and spice. A smoky oak character lies beneath the fruit, complementing it well, while an expansive tannic presence supports the wine’s overall breadth and depth. Big boned, this is built to age yet entirely enjoyable now.
