Jim Clendenen has a creative, curious mind and that means he likes to explore outside the confines of the Burgundian world. Vita Nova is his brand for Bordeaux varieties. From Bien Nacido Vineyard, our Merlot has deep berry fruit with hints of dried herbs. Twenty months in barrel have reigned in the tannins. It’s an incredible deal at $25 per bottle, and at this price it's a steal!
