An Iconic Profile


Your lot includes a very special collection of 12 magnums of Merryvale's flagship red wine, Profile-three magnums from each of the 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 vintages.


Merryvale's iconic Profile proprietary red wine represents the pinnacle of the Schlatter family's vineyards and winemaking. Precisely crafted using a single-lot approach, this limited-production wine epitomizes the family's unwavering dedication to quality.


Profile is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, exclusively sourced from the steep slopes of our Profile Estate Vineyard at the eastern edge of the St. Helena nested appellation.


Planted in 1997 at almost 1,000 feet of elevation, this vineyard consistently delivers grapes with plush fruit character, complexity and silky tannins. The grapes are handpicked, hand-sorted and vinified to capture the unique elegance of our estate terroir. The fruit is cold-soaked with each lot fermented separately in small Rieger tanks using native yeasts. The wine is aged in 100% French oak for an average of 22 months, then bottled without fining or filtration.


This wine is distinguished by its intensity, refinement and balance-eminently approachable at release, but with the structure to reward additional evolution in the cellar for 15 years or more (even longer in magnums). This collection will be a much-loved selection from your cellar for many years to come.
