Our Napa Valley Merlot is deep garnet in color, with aromas of dark berries and chocolate. In the mouth, there are flavors of ripe blackberry, cherry, chocolate, plum and a hint of vanilla. The tannins are subtle yet powerful, making this an elegant wine on the palate. A white pepper, oaky finish makes this wine a masterful accompaniment to a wide array of food.
The name Ca’ Momi honors our roots. Our property in Veneto, Italy once belonged to Momi dea Bionda, a hardworking farmer who became a local legend for his obsessive devotion to his family, farm and vineyards. We share Momi’s values of authenticity, passion, loyalty, dedication and obsession with quality. We chose to pay homage to his legacy in the name of our Napa Valley winery. We proudly share our Italian heritage, and strive each day to honor these values within ourselves, in how we do business and how we make wine.
Influenced by the cooling effect of the Pacific Ocean, Carneros is ideally suited for growing exceptional Merlot, yielding a wine with beautiful structure and a velvety texture. The summer was consistently warm and relatively mild, as dry weather continued into autumn, making the vintage one of the best in years. Although a smaller crop compared to the previous year, the long moderate summer allowed grapes on the vines plenty of time to develop full flavors.
Pairs well with beef, lamb, and veal dishes.
