About the wine

Smooth, top-shelf Merlot from your Napa champion
  • Ken's ripe and rustic Napa Valley Merlot is back and more velvety than ever! It's layered with flavors like red cherries and jammy berries, with a long, smooth finish.

  • Ken combed the Napa Valley to find the perfect fruit for this Napa staple, cold-soaking grapes before fermentation and giving them extra time on the skins afterward for elegant, balanced flavor.

  • Not only is this man a Napa legend (with 40 years+ of experience in the region!), he's one of your very first winemakers. Ken's made you Merlot since the beginning - don't miss your iconic Angel treat!

  • Last year's vintage took a Silver at the 2018 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. You can expect those same award-winning flavors this year!

Best before
Ready to be enjoyed with proper decanting, can age for 3-5 years or more if stored properly.

Serving advice
A young red wine should always be allowed to breathe prior to drinking, decant for an hour or two.

Food match
Red meats especially lamb or beef, roast or grilled chicken, hearty dishes and spicy foods.

Meet the winemaker - Ken Deis

  • Ken can't even remember all the 90+ scores he's gotten from Parker, The Wine Spectator and The Wine Enthusiast. He is the man behind a lot of Napa's greatest hits.
  • He's spent 37 vintages working in some of Napa's most prestigious wineries including Joseph Phelps, Flora Springs, and Heitz, but now he's ready to do his own thing.
  • Ken has devoted a lifetime to perfecting his craft, and his wines are the proof. When Ken does Napa Cab, he nails it. When Ken does Central Coast Rhone variety, he nails it. Whatever he sets out to do, you can trust it's gonna be great.
