This wine was carefully assembled from our best lots from the cool Carneros viticultural area both in Napa and Sonoma.

2003 Merryvale Merlot Reserve
Napa Valley

Due to unfavorable spring weather inhibiting pollination, the Merlot crop in 2003 was very small. The fruit that did finally make it produced wines with rich, concentrated structur ... moree and dark fruit flavors. The core of the 2003 Reserve Merlot blend consists of lots from several vineyards in the Carneros region of Napa Valley. The O’Brien family vineyard in the Oak Knoll District south of Yountville has produced consistently high quality since our first production from there in 2000. Both regions are in the cooler, fog-influenced southern end of the valley. We included a small lot of Petit Verdot from La Herradura on Conn Valley Road to add some depth and richness to the wine’s structure.

2003 Merryvale Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve
Napa Valley

The 2003 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon blend is made up of a few of our best lots from vineyards in Oakville, Oak Knoll District and Rutherford. Weather in spring created such poor se ... moret that there was very little Merlot to use for blending in 2003. The Cabernet Sauvignon crop was not affected and the wines turned out very dense and concentrated. A few barrels of our best Cabernet Franc lot went into the blend to round out the mouthfeel and add a little aromatic complexity.

The vineyards are mostly planted with Dijon clones which produce low yields and concentrated, intensely flavored fruit.

The wine is dense, rich and complex, with a long smoky, toasty oak finish.
