Nestled below the foothills on the east side of the Alexander Valley, the Red Fan Vineyard is the primary source for our Merlot. Planted with two different clones of Merlot grapes, as well as Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, the Red Fan Vineyard has clay loam soils that transition to silty clay. These soils are good at holding water, which helps the vines grow throughout the season.

The 2015 Red Fan Merlot is a real treat for Bordeaux lovers. It originates in Alexander Valley in our Red Fan Vineyard. This Merlot has compelling spice and dark berry fruit, a soft entry that evolves and finishes with rich ripe tannins. There’s so much happening in this glass! Wine is densely packed ready to deliver.
