2016 Guenoc Merlot, California
The 2016 vintage was of exceptional quality with ample sun and mild temperatures which set the stage for a long, ideal growing season. Our 2016 Merlot is soft and approachable with flavors of juicy red raspberry, pomegranate, cherry and a hint of dried herbs and vanilla oak.

Guenoc Valley lies sixty miles north of San Francisco — a breathtaking panorama of oak-strewn grasslands, rolling green hills, craggy outcroppings and perfect volcanic cinder cones, painted with the shimmer of a dozen azure lakes. The 21,349-acre Langtry Estate is one of the largest contiguous private land holdings in California, and among the most beautiful.
