2021 Rombauer Merlot Napa Valley

(Net Item - no discounts apply)

Since 1983, our Merlot has showcased a commitment to excellence. The 2014 shift to Napa's Carneros region, with clay soils akin to Bordeaux's right bank, has elevated our Merlot's quality. Cool climate and sustainable practices yield rich, textured wines with natural acidity, vibrant flavors, and elegant tannins. A masterclass in meticulous winemaking.

After making wine for more than 30 years in the Napa Valley, the late Koerner Rombauer quietly established himself as an industry veteran. The small town farm boy from Southern California followed his first passion, flying, into the California Air National Guard. In 1972, after an almost 20-year career as a pilot, Koerner moved his wife, kids, two horses and five dogs to the Napa Valley. The small agricultural community reminded him of the clean, safe town in which he grew up. Koerner started with 40 hilltop acres just outside of St Helena, but today, the Rombauers own prime vineyards in some of the finest pockets of the Napa Valley, including the sites in Stags Leap, Atlas Peak, St. Helena and Calistoga. The wines have a cult following - give them a taste and you'll see why.
