Mission Briefing


Catch me if you can

2007 Vintage Alert: Today’s wine hails from the 96 Point 2007 vintage. Northern California wines from this vintage are highly prized - and increasingly difficult to find. If you love great Merlot, today’s wine is one to stock up on.

A serious, elegant and delicious wine, today’s 2007 Vitus Napa Valley Merlot is a truly exemplary example of the varietal.

This wine is a delicious solo-sipper but, like most great Merlot, it really shines when enjoyed with a hearty meal. The winery declares this wine to be a ‘Cabernet Lover’s Merlot’ - and we concur. Do you concur?

Tasting Profile


Dark and rich with deep hues of the darkest ruby red. Even coloration from heart to edge.


Shy at first, this wine really wakes up after some decanting or hearty spinning in the glass. As it breathes, it begins to open up, revealing dark mixed berry compote, sweet tobacco leaf and blueberry. Sweet oak and cedar feature prominently throughout.


Flavors lead off with bold mixed berries, plum, sweet spice, chocolate-covered blueberry, Irish Breakfast tea, toasty oak and a hint of slate mineral.


Textured and very long lasting, with bold dark fruits that gradually give way to tobacco, tea and slate at the very end.


Enjoy this wine with your favorite grilled steak, prepared absolutely any way you like it! This wine would go with nearly any preparation of red meat.
