This is our first red blend, made by combining two of our favorite wines, Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon and Carneros Merlot. The fruitiness and softness of the Merlot is balanced by the structure and intensity of the Cabernet. The wine features a colorful and festive label from local artist Sonya Paz.
We have a limited supply of this award-winning wine for sale at the winery. Villa del Monte Wine Club members receive substantial discounts on all wine purchases.
