Hestan Vineyards Stephanie Merlot 2013
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
Hestan Vineyards is a family-owned estate on the eastern slopes of the Napa Valley. The estate's carefully-tended 110 acres are blanketed with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. They also operate a small Chardonnay vineyard planted at the mouth of the Napa River. Winemakers Jeff Gaffner and Thomas Rivers Brown translate these varietals into award-winning, limited-release wines for the Hestan, Meyer and Stephanie labels. Hestan Vineyards was born from the culinary passion of Stanley Cheng and his wife, Helen. Stanley pioneered hard-anodized cookware in the 1970s and has continued to improve the ways we cook through innovations from back-of-house to the backyard. Named for Stanley and Helen Cheng’s only daughter who is a classically trained harpist, the Stephanie wines are made by winemaker Jeff Gaffner using all five of the classic red Bordeaux grapes planted in the Hestan Vineyards. The Stephanie wines are a study in finesse, distinguished by their elegant structure and tremendous cellaring potential. Look for a dark floral and black cherry nose, with notes of plum, cinnamon, clove sweet oak and milk chocolate followed by flavors of brown spice and back blueberry pie, this wine shows round, long tannins with a firm elegant finish
