2013 Jon Nathaniel Wines Merlot Windfall Vineyard

Estate: Jon Nathaniel Wines
Region: Rutherford, Napa Valley, North Coast, California, United States of America
Vineyard: Windfall Vineyard

Tasting Note:July 10, 2016

Garnet red with a deep dark core. A little heat on the nose to start with some baking spices, dirty notes and some woody undertones. Dark cherries on the palate with some baking spices and savory notes. Definitely developed some more depth on day two. Moderate tannins (6.5/10) and moderate body. Moderate plus finish.

Fun fact, on our last trip to Napa we found out that the Windfall Vineyard is the 4 acre vineyard surrounding the pink house in Rutherford off of Highway 29. This bottling is made up of 100% Merlot and is aged for 21 months in a mixture of new and used French oak barrels.
