Barking Dog Vineyard produces premium Merlot grapes in the Coombsville region of Napa Valley. The goal of owners Bevery and Larry Thompson, is to produce Merlot that is fun to drink on its own, but that can also hold its own at the dinner table. The 2008 Barking Dog Merlot is just that - blending the lush fruit flavors that Merlot is know for, with enough tannin structure and complexity to create the ideal balance.

Brick red in color, this Merlot opens with lively aromas of cherry, dried raspberry, crushed blackberry and baking spice. Its soft, dry, full body and warming, complex palate of cherry, wild strawberry, boysenberry, and vanilla lingers on a soft finish that’s heightened by moderate oak flavors.
