     This is my tribute to the “OG” wines of the Napa Valley during the 70’s. In the 70’s Napa merlot wines were highly sought after, more so than the easily obtainable cabernet sauvignon. I was able to find an amazing source of merlot and cab franc and was inspired to make my first red wine. I have always been a big fan of merlot blend wines and it this was the perfect opportunity. Moon Phase merlot has been aged in French oak barrels for 36 months, much longer than the usual practice. I utilized 7 barrels, which were acquired from four of the best coopers in France. Merlot was a huge wine from the beginning, and I feel that using one-year-old premium barrels with longer barrel aging was the right choice. With a one-year bottle age, the time is ripe for me to release this wine, which will surprise you with its depth and richness. It’s a serious wine, which will take you back to times of happiness!--
