2007 Merlot Bottled — 3 Comments

  1. The Napa Town & Country Fair competition results were 3rd place for this vintage. This is not terribly disappointing (better to be 3rd place than no place), and we learn from our efforts. The fruit was from Dixon, CA – and I have decided to buy fruit from better known regions. Our Cab Franc vintage (2009) is from Napa’s Oak Knoll district. We expect that wine to win gold medals as it’s already more vibrant and substantial than prior vintages. NOTE: For those of you wanting to cellar this vintage we encourage you to drink it young as it may not stand up to a long cellar life.
