About the wine

Seductively-smooth Merlot from California's North Coast
  • This decadent red is jam-packed with flavors like red cherries and plums with a smooth, balanced finish (thanks to a dash of California Cab).

  • Tom scoured Lake County to find you the best grapes for your rich and robust Merlot – then aged the wine on both French and American oak for soft, silky texture.

  • A top-shelf, already-aged North Coast Merlot like this will sell for more than double elsewhere. Decant or open the bottle an hour before grilling up a juicy ribeye... ahhhh. Bliss.

Best before
I expect this wine to improve for 3-5 years, though it can be enjoyed right away.

Serving advice
Open 45-60 minutes before serving. Try to save half the bottle and recork it to finish the next day the first time you try it.

Food match
Roast lamb or duck would be great.

Meet the winemaker - Tom Shula

  • Tom Shula was one of our first 1,000 Angels. His passion for winemaking led him to make a barrel or two in his garage.
  • His wines were so fantastic that we took a huge gamble. 49,999 other Angels teamed up and raised about a million bucks for Tom to work with his dream vineyards and make his dream wines at a professional, state-of-the-art winery!
  • If you like rooting for the little guy, Tom's your man. He started in his garage and now he's making award-winning wines and living his dream. All thanks to you!
