Mt. Brave 2016 Merlot Napa Valley

This wine is flavors of blue fruits and mocha abounds with a rounding texture lift this wine on your palate. The long, steady finish exhibits why mountain Merlot stands alone.

Jeb Dunnuck - 96 Points
"Starting with the 2016 Merlot Mt. Veeder, this brilliant wine is one of the top Merlots in the vintage. Purple-hued, fleshy, and beautifully full-bodied, it has terrific notes of black fruits, chocolate, and underbrush, fine yet building tannins, a stacked mid-palate, and a great finish. Even at $80, itís a screaming deal and has true Merlot opulence paired with considerable purity and elegance. It will keep for 15-20 years."

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 94 Points
"Composed of 82% Merlot and 18% Malbec, the 2016 Merlot Mt. Veeder has a deep garnet-purple color and opens with sexy spiced plums, warm blueberries and potpourri scents with hints of fragrant earth, violets and dark chocolate. Full, rich, firm and oh-so-plush, it has a decadently fruited palate and a very long finish with some licorice hints coming through. 547 cases produced."

Wine Spectator - 94 Points
"Powerful, brooding and full of dark plum, dried blackberry and cherry flavors that feature notes of dark olive. Shows savory richness midpalate, with firm tannins on the finish, accented by dark chocolate details. Best from 2021 through 2026."

Wine Enthusiast - 94 Points
"This is a brawny, herbal and structured wine from the great appellation, as wild and challenging as its provenance. Cedar, dried herb and clove surround dense black currant, licorice and brambly blackberry, with sinewy tannin and toasted oak in abundance. This will do well in the cellar; best 2026Ė2031."
