Known for their superb production of both red and white wine, Cakebread Cellars 2013 Napa Valley Merlot is of particular note. Grown in the rocky southern end of Napa Valley (Suscol Springs), only the most diligent and robust vines are able to break through and mature into the fine grapes used for this vintage. With a particularly dry Spring in 2013, the vines were able to bud early and were able to ripen evenly and with intense concentration during the mild Summer. The outcome? A distinctive, true‐to‐varietal flavored grape that has bright acidity and a sturdy structure that is ideal for aging.

Fermented in a mix of small closed and open‐top stainless steel tanks, the juice was repeatedly rolled over the ‘cap’ of skins and other solids to capture the intense color, flavor and tannins. The wine was then partially aged in hand selected French oak barrels for six months then blended and aged for an additional nine months until it reached perfection.
