Wine Comments
Outstanding! The best we've tasted from Havens. It received 90 points from wine writer Robert Parker… 'The 1997 Merlot exhibits a dense ruby/purple colour in addition to a superb nose of chocolate, cocoa, cherries, and smoky, earthy notes. The wine is rich and medium to full-bodied, with low acidity, a sweet, nicely layered palate, and a lush finish. It should drink well for 7-8 years. (Aug-99)' Wine Spectator… 'Dense, with a supple core of black cherry, tar and earth flavours framed by firm tannins. Best from 2000 through 2015.

The Domaine
Havens Winery has been making wines in Napa Valley for the past 20 years. We specialize and focus in making Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. We only work with grapegrowers that raise grapes in the best soils and microcliamte for that particular grape. This concept which is called "Terroir" is the primary philosophy of our winmaking.

Food Pairing
Beef, duck, lamb and roast chicken.
