2019 Smith Wooton Melange

Our Mélange is a fine wine that is produced in the Right Bank Old-World Bordeaux style. This fine wine is blended to highlight the best of each varietal and showcase the rich elegance of these two signature vineyards. 

This beautiful blend consists of 60% Cabernet Franc and 40% Merlot.




2019 SMITH WOOTON Mélange is a bold fine wine that showcases the combination of red fruit and floral aromas that Cabernet Franc and Merlot lend. Extended barrel aging enhances the tannin structure and adds to the wine’s aging potential. This fine wine opens with aromas of red fruit and spice. There is a memory of dried roses and dark cherries with tingles of spices as the wine coats the palate. The wine demonstrates classic leather notes on the finish. This is a classic Smith Wooton wine that coats the palate and leaves you craving another sip. This fine wine has the balance to age gracefully for a decade. Decanting the wine prior to drinking is recommended.

Vineyard Notes

Grapes for the 2019 SMITH WOOTON Mélange come from two highly acclaimed Napa Valley Vineyard. Flinn Vineyard is the site where our single vineyard cabernet franc is made. In addition, we blended in merlot grown in the Longmeadow Ranch vineyard. Both of these sites are expertly farmed using Bordeaux practices and influence. Winemaker, Daniel Benton further accentuated our homage to the Right Bank by using Old- World European techniques in the cellar.
