2009 Parcel 41 Napa Valley Merlot 750ml
They're at it again! The trio of Jim Gill, James Harder and Jim Regusci are proud to introduce Parcel 41 and they are going to change the way you think about Merlot. "Merlot is a grape that is very expressive of the terroir," says partner Jim Regusci. "It has to be planted in the right location and when it is, it can be every bit as complex and flavorful as Cabernet."
While Merlot is typically more difficult to grow than Cabernet Sauvignon, which is why the best Merlot's are often more expensive, Parcel 41 delivers exceptional value. "We learned from the great success of our Twenty Bench label," adds Jim Gill. "It absolutely has to over deliver for the price." The goal with Parcel 41 was to make a Merlot that is supple and elegant yet still has the structure, depth and richness you find in more expensive offerings.
