2015 Napa Valley Merlot
This pure expression of Napa Valley’s finest fruit embodies the partnership between two historic Napa Valley families and 5-time GRAMMY® Nominee, and 24 Na Hoku Honohono award winner, Amy Hānaialiʻi Gilliom.
A bold “Cabernet drinker’s” Merlot, Hanaiali’i has spicy aromas and rich flavors of plum, cherry, cocoa and soft vanilla. Made to impress the most experienced oenophile and suit the palate of the casual wine drinker, this complex wine can be enjoyed now or cellared, and pairs with savory meat dishes as well as seafood and island cuisine.
“In Hawai’i, we love family get togethers – Pā’ina. Food, wine and music are abundant in Paradise. From Napa Valley where we discovered the flavor of Hānaialiʻi, sharing stories, drinking wine, and playing music at our first pāʻina, to bringing my music to you in this bottle–feels like home to me. Enjoy this taste of Hawaiʻi in our Merlot with Aloha from our Ohana in Napa Valley.
