Nickel & Nickel Single-Vineyard

Our Approach to Merlot

Merlot is often thought of as the little brother of Cabernet Sauvignon and the two varietals are frequently blended together. Yet, when grown in the right places, Merlot makes an exquisite wine all on its own. We’ve identified three Napa Valley vineyards that show entirely different and we think delicious expressions of 100 percent varietal, single-vineyard Napa Valley Merlot.

Our Napa Valley Merlot Vineyards

We’ve sourced three vineyards, one in Oakville, one in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley and the other just south of the town of Napa, which yield excellent examples of Merlot. These vineyards were chosen for exposures that allow the fruit to mature slowly and develop the gorgeous flavors we so enjoy from bottle to bottle.
