SERIOUS, DRY REDS

Bordeaux Style - MERLOT, Joe Cafaro. Napa Valley, California

Sorry This bottle is currently not available.

2011 Now finished: MERLOT, Joe Cafaro. Napa Valley, California

Bin: 530
Alcohol Percentage: 14.5%
Grape Variety: 90% Merlot with just a seasoning of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. All aged in French oak (half new) for 19 months
Producer: Cafaro is a small estate (he makes just 3,000 cases in total), based on a 15 hectare hillside vineyard south of the Stag's Leap appellation, at just under 200 metres above sea level. Joe has been making wine in Napa Valley for 40 years and when we met him it was interesting to see he drove a SMALL car - this is a rare example of a California winery not founded on a superfluity of both wealth and ego
Cellar Potential: 2016-2021
Old Bridge Rating: Napa Merlot became a bit of a cliché in the 1980s. But there was a quality concept in there somewhere. This is a winning example of the breed - luscious richness with both backbone and charm
