2018 MAROON SINGLE VINEYARD RESERVE NAPA VALLEY MERLOT

$66.00

Paul Maroon farmed and tended to his estate vineyards for over 20 years selling to several high-profile wineries in Napa Valley before he hired Chris Corley to produce his first vintage of Maroon Wines in 2009. Since the inaugural release, Chris has remained Maroon’s winemaker, crafting beautifully balanced, site-expressive wines of remarkable quality.

Paul’s aim for his wines is to represent Nature’s purity with each new harvest, and all Maroon wines are 100% varietal from single vineyards cared for by small, family farmers in the Valley. The Maroon 2018 Reserve Merlot was grown in the Chiles Valley AVA from a single vineyard that experiences temperatures about three to five degrees cooler than the Valley floor due to elevation. The site’s cool, Pacific breezes allow Merlot to retain fresh acidity and bright fruit flavors with soft tannins and finesse.

Tasting Notes, “The Maroon 2018 Reserve Merlot opens with elegant notes of violets, red plum, clove, pomegranate, and wet rock minerality. The wine is silky smooth on the palate, with soft tannins and flavors of raspberry, bing cherry, and baking spices that coat the mouth and contribute to a pleasant finish. This wine is easily approachable and delightful to drink now, yet it still has the components necessary for further aging if desired.” 95+ Points
