J. Kirkwood Merlot 2006
Reid Family Vineyards was founded in 1992 with the planting of a small Napa Valley vineyard in the foothills of Mt. Veeder. The estate was originally homesteaded in 1880 as a prune ranch and the original barn still remains as a silent reminder of that era.
The wine is made using traditional French barrel-to-barrel racking techniques without filtration or fining. It is literally hand crafted and nurtured through each step of the winemaking process. One hundred percent French oak and the best Napa Valley grapes are used to produce about 400 cases of each year.
