Cornerstone Oakville Station Merlot 2012
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Oakville|
This is our first release under our new Napa Valley single vineyard program. I can't think of a better vineyard for us to start with than one of our Oakville Station Vineyard blocks in To Kalon. This 100% merlot is pure luxury bringing out the true hedonist in all of us. Velvety and opulent it still remains light on its feet as there is more than ample acidity to carry the amazing depth and power of this wine. While generous, this full-bodied merlot is still a wine for the cellar and will reward five or more years of patience with a truly stunning wine. Just 97 cases were produced.
Appealing, if modest in scale, with accents of cherry, cedar and herb. Drink now through 2020. 101 cases made.
