Monticello Vineyards’ 2006 Estate Grown Merlot comes from two of the winery’s prestigious estate vineyards in Napa Valley – the Home Ranch Vineyard and Knollwood Vineyard, both of which are located in the esteemed Oak Knoll District. Blending Merlot from these distinctive sties resulted in intense, complex flavors and a full bodied, elegantly textured, seamless wine – a beautiful achievement!
The Monticello Vineyards 2006 Estate Grown Merlot displays bright fruit aromas of cherry and cranberry with subtle background tones of vanilla and oak. The Merlot has a rich sweetness in its core that is well framed by the soft tannins. Hints of chocolate and coffee come through on the finish, leaving your palate begging for another sip (and perhaps a bite of spice-rubbed steak to complement its mouth-filling, lingering flavors.)
With 92 Points and 5 out of 5 Stars from Beverage Dynamics magazine, the 2006 Estate Grown Merlot has garnered an excellent reputation and has since sold out at the winery. It is a beautiful bottling we know you will enjoy!
