Chardonnay received a score of 90 points from Robert
Parker's Wine Advocate.
Quail Ridge Merlot
award-winning Merlot comes from the heart of Napa Valley,
America's most prestigious wine region.
The wine has a rich ruby hue and well-ripened plum

raspberry flavors complemented by subtle hints
of toasted oak.

goes well with tomato-based dishes.

wine garnered gold medals at the 2006 International
Wine Competition, the 2006 Taster's Guild International
Wine Judging, the 2006 San Francisco Chronicle Wine
Competition, and the 2006 Jerry D. Mead New World International
