Normally $28+, this small-production gem has become an all-time fave for our clients -- jaw-dropping price!

This small-production gem has become an all-time Invino community favorite! Jigar’s ‘16 Merlot (an excellent vintage for Sonoma and Northern CA) came to us directly from the cellar of the winery, and man does it SING! Blows the doors off anything else for $14 without question! Only 100 cases were produced of this single-vineyard Dry Creek Merlot.

Jigar, the Sonoma-based winery owned by entrepreneur, Jigar Patel, continues to impress us with its tremendous quality-to-price ratio. That is in reference to their winery retail prices, at 50% off those prices, these now fall under the "no-brainer" and "case-me" categories.

This is sourced from the Mizany vineyard, in the heart of Dry Creek Valley with a climate similar to Bordeaux, with Yolo Sandy Loam soils that, in combination with the French and American oak, create a lush incense and potpourri-scented wine. It has a warm, round texture, tons of spice, silky crushed fresh blue and black berries, dried black cherry and a whiff of grated dark chocolate to boot! Delicious and, as noted, simply jaw-dropping at $14. But it will FLY out of here -- while it lasts!
