Profile

The Merryvale founders crafted the first Profile red blend in 1983, from the finest Napa Valley fruit of the vintage. Joined by Swiss-born Jack Schlatter in the early 1990s, these visionary partners and then winemaker Bob Levy sought out vineyard sites of exceptional quality and character to blend together into a complex whole.

                                                                                             NAPA VALLEY RED WINE

 

            Tasting Notes: Aromas of licorice, blackberry, raspberry and plum, interwoven with dark chocolate and black olive and punctuated with balsamic notes. A rich,  round entry introduces significant depth and length,    with elegant notes of leather and savory herbs that balance the weight and power on the finish. Well-integrated oak provides supple, extremely fine-grained tannins. Decanting is recommended in its youth,  but this wine will achieve greater complexity 8-10 years from release,    and with proper cellaring will continue to deepen and evolve over the next 15-20+ years.

Grape varieties: 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petit Verdot, 5% Cabernet Franc.

                                                                     Silhouette Napa Valley  Chardonnay

 

Tasting Notes: The 2015 Silhouette starts with beautiful hints of fresh almonds, acacia and citrus notes. The wine then evolves towards exotic fruits with papaya,    mango and peach.   In the mouth it is defined by a beautiful length with an abundance of mineral notes and outstanding acidity. The mouthfeel is extremely intense but very fresh and elegant as well.

 

Grape varieties: 100% Chardonnay
