TASTING NOTES

The 2013 Vidal Vineyards Merlot is so sublime, smooth, and easy drinking. It is the product of perfectly ripened grapes, sourced from the heart of Napa Valley, and handled with loving care in the tank and cellar.

This gorgeous wine displays adequate aromas of ripe cherry and spiced plum, mingled with vanilla. With well-integrated tannins and acidity that extends through the finish, this beautifully-structured Merlot promises excellent cellaring potential.

VINTAGE

2013 is considered by many to be an “epic” year in Napa Valley. The return of warm weather and the long, consistent growing season allowed berries to develop complex aromas and flavors. The drought winter with almost no rainfall from January through March brought an earlier than usual budbreak. With just one heat spike in late June and early July, the growing season provided weather for optimal flavor development in the grapes and resulted in an early and healthy harvest.
