The heart of Sonoma Valley

Our Merlot was first planted at our Estate Vineyard in 1987, and has long been a mainstay in our premier Merlot blends. The grapes used to make our Single Vineyard Estate Merlot are sourced from the upper slope of our vineyard, where the rocky soil stresses the vines, resulting in excellent fruit with powerful flavors and well-ripened tannins.
