ST. HELENA, Calif., Nov 30, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) --Merryvale Vineyards will release the 2008 vintage of Profile, their renowned Bordeaux-style red blend. With this vintage, the Schlatter Family commemorates the Silver Anniversary of one of the Napa Valley's most recognizable and highly acclaimed wines.
Wineries In India Merryvale Vineyards was founded in 1983 as an ultra-premium winery, and originally produced only one wine, a Cabernet Sauvignon based blend called "Napa Valley Red Table Wine." It represented the very best wine they could make in a given vintage using Bordeaux red varietals from top vineyards in the Napa Valley. With the 1987 vintage, the proprietary name "Profile" was first introduced, and thus a Napa Valley legend was born.
The Wine Society Of India Anticipation is already running high for the 2008 Profile, which Wine Enthusiast Magazine recently named their #5 Cellar Selection of 2011, and Robert Parker awarded 96 Points declaring it "the best wine Merryvale has ever produced." Throughout its development, Profile has showcased fruit from premier Napa Valley vineyards including To Kalon, Stagecoach, and Merryvale's St. Helena Estate Vineyard. That vineyard was planted in 1997 under the direction of then winemaker Bob Levy, with assistance from consultant Michel Rolland and viticulturist David Abreu, who still farms it for Merryvale today. The plush Cabernet Sauvignon, structured Petit Verdot, and perfumed Cabernet Franc from the St. Helena Estate Vineyard have been the core of Profile since the 2006 vintage. Profile is now in the care of talented Merryvale Winemakers Sean Foster and Graham Wehmeier, who bring over 30 years of experience crafting Bordeaux inspired wines in the Napa Valley.

With top Burgundies and Bordeaux too costly for most people, wines like those from Rioja in Spain, pictured, and from the Santa Cruz Mountains of California are getting more attention and commanding more respect.
Vineyards In India I HAVE never been one of those people who feel they live in the wrong era. I am eternally grateful, for example, to draw breath in the age of anesthesia. But I have occasionally lamented that I was born just a few years too late.

he is launching his own wine label, Yao Family Wines. Yao will release the inaugural vintage of Yao Ming Napa Valley Cabernet in China on Nov. 28.
Wine From India The 7' 6" Houston Rockets center became a fan and a booster of California Cabernet during his time in the NBA. "Napa Valley wines are the wines I fell in love with when I lived in the U.S.," Yao, 31, told Wine Spectator . "While I was on the road with the Rockets, the players would go out to dinner together and some of them knew a lot about wine, and I learned from them." Two years ago, Yao and his management team decided to act on his enthusiasm, hoping to create a fine wine to represent Napa Valley in the growing Chinese market. This week, the winery will release the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon in Beijing, Guangzhou and Yao's hometown of Shanghai. A Family Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon will debut next year. The winery will also begin sales in the U.S. market next year.
Wines Of India For America, the wine's biggest impact could be as a symbol of Napa Valley in the growing Chinese wine business. "China is the priority market" for the wine, according to Con Constandis, president and managing director for Pernod Ricard China, which is importing the wines into the People's Republic. "California as a wine region enjoys quite high awareness among the Chinese consumers, and, in particular, premium Napa Valley wines have a pretty good image and are gradually becoming well-accepted by sophisticated wine lovers in China." According to company officials, the Yao Ming Napa Valley Cabernet will be sold at $289 a bottle, in the "ultra prestige" segment of the market, where the status labels of Bordeaux and Champagne reside. When China's new wealthy class began to drink imported wines, classic French regions like Bordeaux, Champagne and, more recently, Burgundy, were their early acquisitions. Napa producers have worked to gain a foothold in China in recent years, but it can be a daunting market to enter. According to data from China customs, France owned 47 percent of the market for imported bottled wine in 2010. The U.S. came in sixth, with a 6.4 percent share.
