2006 Black Clover

2006 Black Clover

2006 Merlot Napa Valley

Irish lore tells of incredible luck being bestowed upon anyone fortunate enough to find a four-leaf clover. Ten thousand times more rare than the three-leafed norm, spotting one is an indication of both luck and a keen eye. It just so happens that these two attributes can bring great fortunes at the card table, turning a peasant (the class the suit originally symbolized) into royalty. Unfortunately for those already possessing great riches, the reverse is also true. So, caution, friend. We celebrate the ability of a man to improve his lot in life with our Black Clover merlot.

Brighter fruit character from the northern-most vineyards and dark fruits from the more southerly vineyards. Softer, higher acidity from the south, bigger tannins and color from the north.
