Our winemaker David Vergari worked at two renowned Napa wineries during the early part of his career path—Joseph Phelps Vineyards and the Hess Collection. He decided on this particular Merlot because it has the varietal typicité one expects from Merlot grown in the Napa Valley. You’ll appreciate its blueberry and earthy/spicy aromas as well as the soft yet firm tannins and rich aftertaste. Salud!
Thornton Winery’s Cabernet – Merlot blend creates a perfect synergy among these three verietals, resulting in a multi-layered , full bodied meritage style wine. Complex flavors of cherry, cassis, cocoa, and black currant are framed with fine, yet firm tannins that give this wine an amazing mouth coating richness. Finishing with hints of French oak and maple, enjoy this wine now with grilled meats and hearty pastas, or cellar 5 to 7 years.
