“Supple and luxurious both on the nose and on the palate, the 2015 Stephanie Merlot offers a silken mélange of black red currant, violet, plum, tobacco and leather on the nose. On the palate, notes of plum, black cherry, raspberry give way to beautiful, balanced tannins on the finish”. The provenance of Napa Valley’s Hestan Vineyards, the pedigree of Bordeaux’s classic red grape varietals and the artistry of consulting winemaker Jeff Gaffner come together in “Stephanie” by Hestan Vineyards. Named for owners Stanley and Helen Cheng’s only daughter, whose concert harp is depicted on the label, Stephanie is the virtuoso expression of Hestan Vineyard’s full varietal composition.
