Don Baker's (winemaker) notes

"The 2005 Stonehedge Napa Valley Merlot is produced exclusively from mountian top hillsides of Napa Valley. Grown in desolate rocky soil in high altitudes, the vines are naturally stressed into yielding a very limited amount of grapes with intense flavor concentration. Elegant and smooth, yet boldly packed with layer upon layer of ripe cherry berry plummy flavors and a finish that never quits. Built to last. This wine can be enjoyed now or develop further complexities by addional cellaring."

Avoid this wine if you have a sulphite allergy - not that a great deal has been added, but because the wine is so pure there is little for the free sulphur to interact with so it has remained free despite the bottle age.
