PRODUCT OVERVIEW/REVIEW:

Koerner and Joan Rombauer launched Rombauer Vineyards in 1980. As stewards of the land, they have strived to produce the best wine an appellation, terroir, and climate will achieve. As the second generation takes over, they are dedicated to continuing their parents’ vision.*

Merlot’s finest qualities emerge in cooler climates and clay soils, thus it is ideally suited for the Carneros region, where San Francisco Bay meets the southern end of Napa and Sonoma valleys. The Rombauers have long been fans of the varietal’s rich, silky texture and supple tannins, as well as its versatility with food. The first Rombauer Vineyards Merlot was produced in 1983.*

The near-perfect 2012 vintage consisted of a long, warm growing season without temperature extremes. The result was high-quality fruit that made for soft, rich wines with well-developed flavors. The grapes were carefully de-stemmed and sorted to ensure only perfect fruit made it into the tanks. A cold soak extracted color and flavor before primary fermentation. The wine was gently basket-pressed before being racked to French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and aging.*

Aromas of ripe blood plums and cherry intertwine with subtle, well-integrated notes of oak. This medium-to-full-bodied wine is soft and subtle on the palate with flavors of plums and cherries at the forefront, leading to a lifted, aromatic finish that displays a distinct freshness.*

90 points, Wine Spectator:
"Plump and supple, with red currant and rose petal aromas and elegantly complex flavors of black cherry, mocha, and spice. Drink now through 2026." (11/30/06)
