PlumpJack Merlot 2013
Our Merlot vineyard is in the Oak Knoll region of the Napa Valley, nestled up to the Mayacamas Mountain Range on the west side of the valley. The mild climate and alluvial soils in this region lend this wine great balance and structure. The mild temperatures allow these grapes to develop bright aromatics and flavors, along with a beautiful natural acidity and elegance. The alluvial soils bring darker fruits to the nose and palate, and give this wine its structure and concentration. The 2013 vintage gave this wine aromas of bright, wild raspberry, black cherry, earth, and slate, with the barrels contributing some spice and smoke. The palate is full-bodied and rich, with bright and sweet fruits, such as raspberry and cherry. The wine then reveals earthy notes and finishes with dark chocolate. The robust structure and bright acidity give this wine great tension, balance, and a lengthy finish.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Merlot is still grapy, primary and not showing the nuances of the 2012. It looks to be loaded, is certainly dense in color, and cuts a relatively broad volume across the palate, but not yet showing much finesse.
Château-Smith-Haut-Lafitte Pessac Leognan 2009The style of our red wine is very classic, with a neat expression of our terrior of Gnzian Gravels, which gives the wine some unique smoky notes. We look for elegance and structure, freshness and complexity, balance and richness. The majority of Cabernet Sauvignon grown in our vineyard, harvested at full maturity and vinified in the softest way to only extract the silkiest tannins, unveils after a few years all its potential, which we can then enjoy during long years. The other varietals grown on the estate add to the Cabernet Sauvignon their own flavors and take part to the typical harmony of our Cru Classe de Graves.
Torbreck RunRig 2009The delightful aromatics are released as soon as the wine is de-corked, with layers of raspberries, apricots and crème de cassis cloaking subtle hints of black olive and cherry. A dark, rich and concentrated palate flows from black fruits into brooding anise and dark chocolate and is bound by tight, grainy tannin. This wine possesses a multitude of different facets and nuances that will constantly change and evolve. Although extremely intense, the wine's power is cloaked within its balance and concentration, surging forth as an expansive sensation- the way only the greatest wines can. The 2009 RunRig will greatly reward those with patience.

Caymus Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 2014Caymus Special Selection is the flagship wine of the Wagner family and is comprised of the very best barrels of the vintage.
