2019 Merlot Wine
The 2019 Merlot opens with lifted aromatics of violet and cacao supported by a fruit set of plum, dried blueberry, and raspberry. Savory tones of porcini mushroom, leather, and graphite broaden the mid-palate, bringing detail and nuance to the wine’s mid-weight frame before finishing with lingering notes of dark berry fruit, cedar, and black tea.
Founded in 1889, Mayacamas stands as one of the most storied vineyards and winery operations in Napa Valley, CA, located high on the slopes of Mount Veeder. Since the 1950’s the vinification of Mayacamas wines has remained remarkably consistent with a continued commitment to employ classical techniques and tools that are integral to the character of the Mayacamas brand and product. In July 2013, Mayacamas was purchased by the Jay Schottenstein family, marking the beginning of a bright new era at Mayacamas. The Schottenstein’s will continue the Mayacamas legacy and distinguished 125 year history while simultaneously moving the brand into the future. Through meticulous restoration of the winery, a renewed focus on the details of great farming and winemaking and employing a highly skilled team including Winemaker Braiden Albrecht under the tutelage of Andy Erickson – one of the most accomplished winemakers of his generation, and Phil Coturri – renowned organic viticulturist, to oversee the process of replanting the vineyards and regenerating the soils; their vision is coming to fruition. Visitors can taste Mayacamas wines and shop luxury retail items at the Downtown Napa tasting room or tour the vineyard through an off-road mountain tasting experience.
