Tyros wine is the perfect expression of the Napa Valley. The vineyards that contribute to this wine span most of the AVA’s (American Vinicultural Areas) in the Napa Valley and include the Pope Valley at the North end of the valley, through St. Helena and the Oak Knoll district and end up in the Carneros AVA in the Southern end of the valley. They are blended together to form a harmonious and expressive wine.
The Merlot portion of the wine includes 82% from the Oak Knoll District AVA, and the rest from the St. Helena and Rutherford AVAs. The Cabernet Sauvignon comes primarily from the Silenus Estate Vineyards in the Oak Knoll AVA.
The wine was aged for 30 months in 60% new French oak and the rest in neutral barrels. This blend of oak integrates perfectly with the lush fruitiness of the wine and lends just the right amount of tannins for a perfect balance.
The color of our 2017 Tyros Merlot is a beautiful ruby red with purple undertones. The bouquet of this wine has bright flavors of plums, pomegranates and baking spices. The silky palate tastes of purple figs, raspberries and perfectly toasted oak with a long and pleasant finish. This is an exceptionally well- balanced wine that will pair nicely with a wide variety of foods or will sip perfectly on its own.
