Castello di Amorosa's Merlot Tops in Napa Valley

Castello di Amorosa's 2006 Merlot was recently judged the best Merlot in a blind taste test sponsored by the Napa Valley Vintners Association and the St. Helena Star.

Judged by veteran Napa Valley winemakers, the Castello's Merlot was the least expensive of the five finalists.

Here's the link to the St. Helena Star article:

The following is an excerpt from the article:

"Castello di Amorosa Napa Valley Merlot 2006 ($34) is a bowl of ripe cherries, currants, raspberry and dark plum with dusty tannins. Crafted by winemaker Brooks Painter, this wine is 100% Merlot. Visiting the incredible castle, between Calistoga and St. Helena on Highway 29, would be a fun way to share the holiday with friends and family. While there won't be sleigh rides in the snow, Castello di Amorosa has horse-drawn carriage rides through the vineyards."

Visit Castello di Amorosa to taste the award-winning Merlot. Our wines are only available at the Castello or online.
