 2013 Merryvale 'Chairman's Selection' Proprietary Red Napa Valley

A blend of Bordelais varieties from Merryvale’s vast stable of top vineyard sources, this boasts aromas of spice cake, and the complex, gravelly taste of the soil, lilting above a ripe and satisfying mouthful of Cabernet Franc fruit, accented with Malbec, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. A wine to thrill you with 8-15 years in the cellar.

The first post-Prohibition winery built in the Napa Valley, Merryvale has a colorful history. It began life as Sunny Saint Helena Winery in 1933, and by 1937, Cesare Mondavi was a partner. It was here that his sons, Peter and Robert Mondavi, both learned how to make wine. Sunny Saint Helena was mostly a co-op, bulk producer, and storage facility over the years, and in 1988 it was revived as a luxury producer by Bill Harlan and several partners. By 1991 the winery was renamed Merryvale, and the Schlatter family of Switzerland became partners. Today René Schlatter, who has lived and worked in the US since 1987, is the owner and CEO.

Merryvale is important to us because the expert winemaking team of Sean Foster and Simon Faury are relentless in their pursuit of pure, sustainably farmed, expressive wines. Faury has worked extensively in France and Italy, as well as Napa Valley icons like Robert Mondavi and Harlan Estate. Grapes are picked by hand and fermented in many small batches, which give Foster and Faury total control over quality in the final blends.

Merryvale sources fruit from all over the valley, and also from the elite Schlatter Family Vineyard, on the east side of Saint Helena.
