About the wine

Rich, sturdy, fruit-filled Merlot - this red's a class act
  • Single-vineyard, velvety Napa Merlot – popping with lively berries and spice and smooth richness, thanks to some snazzy French oak aging. If that's not a classy red wine, what is?! 
  • With your support, Matt accessed a special estate property along Atlas Peak – a famous Napa sub-appellation with high elevation and hard granite soil. That makes the vines grow sturdy, tiny grapes that produce super concentrated flavors and give your wine great depth!
  • Napa Valley Merlot from this vineyard is usually $50-70+ per bottle - but you've got the inside track. Make this red a special gift to yourself. You've earned it!

Best before
Shows beautifully early on but will improve over the next 5+ years.

Serving advice
In the early years, a decant will help open the wine. Open and let it breathe, 30 to an hour should do, then enjoy!

Meet the winemaker - Matt Iaconis

  • This rocket scientist was studying to be an astronaut before he decided wine was even cooler than space. So he dropped aeronautics and picked up a degree in winemaking from UC Davis.
  • And he dropped conventional distribution just as quickly! When he saw the power of Angel funding, he immediately signed up, eager to create better wines at better prices.
  • Angel funding allows this hugely talented and driven individual to apply all his attention to making the best wine possible. Whether he’s keeping it classic with big, bold Cabernet or putting a fresh, vibrant spin on traditional whites, you freed Matt to make show-stopping wines for an incredibly delicious price.
