    Beautifully crafted and elegantly styled, with ripe, smooth currant, plum, blackberry and ginger snap flavors that glide across the palate. Rich and concentrated, this wine makes a statement with its finesse and grace, finishing with ripe, fine-grained tannins. 900 cases made.

Merryvale was the first winery built in Napa Valley following the repeal of Prohibition. In the heart of America's premier wine region, passionate winemaking thrives in the care of the Schlatter family, along with Winemakers Sean Foster and Graham Wehmeier. By maintaining a shared vision -- turning exceptional Napa Valley grapes into world class wine-- Merryvale has earned international acclaim for wines of outstanding quality.

California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
