2013 Textbook Merlot Napa Valley 750 mL

2013 Textbook Merlot Napa Valley 750 mL

Rainfall returned with a vengeance in 2011, including a wet winter and storms into June, delaying flowering. A cool summer pushed ripening back, and led the most diligent of growers to trim canopies and yields as a precaution. Shatter, combined with aggressive crop management, led to one of the smallest harvests in years. In the end, quality was better than expected, and again showed that Napa Valley, even in a cool, wet year, can deliver the flavor and structure required for delicious world-class wines.

2010 Anthem Estate Merlot Mt. Veeder Napa Valley 750 mL Wine

2010 Anthem Estate Merlot Mt. Veeder Napa Valley 750 mL Wine

Our 2010 Napa Valley growing season was another successful vintage. The season will be remembered as relatively long due to the wet Spring and cool Summer temperatures that lasted until the end of August. We welcomed higher temperatures in late August and September that helped our grapes fully mature, and more mild weather in October that gave our grapes the hang time needed to achieve optimum ripeness. As a result, our 2010 Cabernet is a very deep, intense wine in both color and concentration.

2011 Grgich Hills Estate Napa Valley Merlot 750 mL Wine

2011 Grgich Hills Estate Napa Valley Merlot 750 mL Wine

Thanks to cool weather and unexpected rains, 2011 was a demanding but, in the end, rewarding vintage for us. The wet winter and spring delayed the start of bloom and then cool temperatures slowed grape development, pushing the start of harvest back by two weeks. More reminiscent of France than Napa Valley, this vintage fashioned elegant wines with great aromatics and the lower level of sugars from the cool growing season translated into lower alcohol.

2010 Artesa Vineyards Carneros Napa Valley Merlot 750 mL

2010 Artesa Vineyards Carneros Napa Valley Merlot 750 mL

The winter of 2010 brought persistent periods of rain, and continued wet weather in the spring slowed the growing season by spreading out the fruit-set phase in our vineyards for nearly six weeks. A cool summer made for gradual ripening until the end of August when we experienced a short but extreme heat spell. Our harvest in Carneros started two weeks later than average and progressed at a slow pace with continued moderate temperatures. Warmer weather returned the last week of September and lasted for two weeks, bringing our grapes to maturity.

2009 Grgich Hills Estate Napa Valley Merlot 750 mL

2009 Grgich Hills Estate Napa Valley Merlot 750 mL

For the third year in a row, Napa Valley received only two-thirds of its average rainfall in 2009, which reduced crop levels somewhat. Spring was essentially frost-free, and a relatively cool summer with no drastic heat surges brought smooth, even grape development. Just before harvest a few days of heat ensured perfect ripeness and allowed a leisurely harvest.
