Valentine Vineyards 2003 Echo Valley Estate Merlot

We’ve been growing award winning Merlot since 1987. In 2003, winemaker Mike Officer determined we’d waited long enough to bring these beautiful berries to the next level. The result is our premier release of Valentine Vineyards Merlot. A beautiful balance of Merlot’s seductive charm and velvet-gloved power. This wine will show the Merlot-adverse the error of their ways.

Produced from 100% Merlot grapes from Valentine Vineyards' “Upper Bench Block”, this wine was aged for 20 months in a majority of new French Oak barrels. Only 282 cases were produced and the Summer of 2006 marks the release of this wine. We are offering it at $22.00 per bottle with a 20% discount. This caluculates out to $211.20 a case. It is time for Valentine Vineyards Cabernet lovers to give a new varietal from us a try!

Valentine Vineyards 2002 Echo Valley Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

In our Echo Valley Vineyards, 2002 was an excellent vintage overall, with generous spring rains and optimum temperatures at harvest resulting in extended hang time and near-perfect ripening. A new selection protocol in the vineyard coupled with adjustments to our barrel mix (emphasizing the use of more French oak) resulted in what we believe is an excellent wine.

In the words of one reviewer, Valentine Vineyards 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits “...excellent black currant flavors already blending nicely with the oak... (It’s) three dimensional and, although it is drinking remarkably well for its age right now, ...it should develop well over at least the next two to three years” (John Walter, London).

Our ‘02 Cab is doubtless the most complex yet appealing wine we’ve produced to date.
