19 Smith Wooton Melange

Our Mélange is a wine that is produced in the Right Bank Bordeaux style. This wine is blended to highlight the best of each varietal and showcase the rich elegance of these two signature vineyards.

Grapes for the 2019 SMITH WOOTON Mélange come from two highly acclaimed Napa Valley Vineyard. Flinn Vineyard is the site where our single vineyard cabernet franc is made. In addition, we blended in merlot grown in the Longmeadow Ranch vineyard. Both of these sites are expertly farmed using Bordeaux practices and influence. Winemaker, Daniel Benton further accentuated our homage to the Right Bank by using old world European techniques in the cellar.

TASTING PROFILE

2019 SMITH WOOTON Mélange is a bold wine that showcases the combination of red fruit and floral aromas that Cabernet Franc and Merlot lend. Extended barrel aging enhances the tannin structure and adds to the wine’s aging potential. The wine opens with aromas of red fruit and spice. There is a memory of dried roses and dark cherries with tingles of spices as the wine coats the palate. The wine demonstrates classic leather notes on the finish. This is a classic Smith Wooton wine that coats the palate and leaves you craving another sip. This wine has the balance to age gracefully for a decade. Decanting the wine prior to drinking is recommended.
