The name Parcel 41 is derived from the original agriculture land assessor's plot number for Nine North’s ranch in Napa Valley, California.

Merlot grapes are typically more difficult to grow than Cabernet Sauvignon, which is why the best Merlots are often more expensive. Therefore the goal with Parcel 41 was to make a Merlot that is supple and elegant, yet still has the structure, depth and richness you find in more expensive offerings.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The Parcel 41 Merlot shines ruby red in the glass, with shimmering purple undertones. The nose is dark and alluring, with aromas of black currant, saddle leather, and milk chocolate, with a subtle and delicate floral note. The mouth is soft and substantial, with round, mouth-filling tannins layering smoothly with the densely packed flavors of choco- late-covered cherries, spicy black plum, and smoky espresso.
Production Notes
85% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon
Food Pairing Notes
This wine is a crowd pleaser and will pair well with a meal of pan roasted pork chops with thyme and currants, served with bacon-roasted Brussels sprouts and a wild rice pilaf.
