Arguably the most renowned wines on earth, the classed growths of Bordeaux continue to epitomize the power and complexity Bordeaux blends are capable of. While most wines here are based on Cabernet Sauvignon, both Merlot and Cabernet Franc play important roles in adding layered complexity to the finished wines, and allow winemakers in each commune within the region to use the blend that is best suited to their unique combination of soil and meso-climate. The most famous communes each have their own classic traits with St. Estephe giving full, if rustic wines, from the heavy clay soils, to Paulliac's elegant balance of ripe fruits, minerality and structure to St. Julien's rich blackberry core and supple feel. Moving to the South of the region brings one to Margaux, with its notes of flowers and berries draped over a feminine frame, and then to the Graves region with wines redolent of tobacco, gravel and smoke. To the East lies the famous appellations of St. Emillion, with its wonderfully ripe Cabernet Franc, and Pomerol where Merlot rules the roost and produces deep, plush wines of uncommon refinement.

Folie à Deux
Menage a Trois 2007
California - Napa County
Menage a Trois
This wine exposes the fresh, ripe, jam-like fruit that is the calling card of California wine. Three saucy grapes make up the blend. Zinfandel adds a juicy character, Merlot mellows and Cabernet adds backbone. Forward, spicy and soft, this delicious dalliance makes the perfect trio.
Basic Table Wine! Great with spaghetti (10/30/2009)

Merlot 2005
Merlot - California - Napa County
Hints of violets and a fabulous spiciness show in the nose, a chocolaty creaminess combines with the rich fruit on the palette, and the finish is long, deep, and elegant. Drink now or decades from now.

Three Palms Merlot
"This lush, dark ruby wine reveals an array of spice and fruit aromas such as black cherry, raspberry, black pepper and cinnamon, mingled with cocoa, mineral and toasty vanilla notes. The palate is rich and concentrated with strong cherry flavors, firm tannins and a fruity finish. Beautifully balanced and full-bodied, this wine will age for many years."
