Bullied and accused, the only crime Merlot has committed is that of luxury. The suppleness of Merlot can not be denied, this Guenoc California Merlot offers ample textured tannins to drape the cherry and dark chocolate flavor… Merlot is back! Since the 2004 release of the movie “Sideways” Merlot sales have suffered. For the savvy oenophile the result has been almost a decade of great value. Merlot, at its finest, is perhaps the best of the Bordeaux grapes. The Guenoc California Selection Merlot continues this value stream and rewards those who break from the herd.
The Langtry Estate is located in the picturesque Guenoc Valley of Lake County. With over 23,000 acres of land, Langtry’s vast property spans throughout Lake County and into the northern tip of Napa Valley. The winery itself was originally built in 1981 to resemble the old Langtry barn still standing across from the Gebhard Hunting Lodge two miles south of the winery.
