Overview of the Wine
Seavey is known for handcrafting wines of exceptional depth, elegance and restraint, and with an uncommon ability to age. Our grapes are grown entirely on our family-run estate vineyard and the wine does not leave the property until it is in bottle. We look forward to offering you a taste of wine made in the finest classical tradition, and a glimpse of a vineyard and winery operation that is reminiscent of the “Old Napa Valley.”

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
The aromatics of this wine are wonderfully infused with tart strawberry, dusty beets, and toffee. On the palate, resinous herbs intermingle with pie crust and vanilla, followed by notes of tobacco, lavender, and clove oil. Hearty and resplendent, this wine has exemplary depth and power, and true to Seavey style can be cellared for fifteen years or more.
93 Points - Vinous
Seavey's 2018 Merlot is bright, fresh and beautifully perfumed. Sweet crushed red berry fruit, spice and floral notes give the Merlot its effusive personality. Medium in body and impeccably refined, the 2018 Merlot is fabulous. The Seavey Merlot remains one of the most distinctive, under the radar wines in Napa Valley.
93 Points - Jeb Dunnuck
Leading off the reds, the 2018 Merlot (100% Merlot) sports a vivid ruby/purple color as well as juicy notes of Bing cherries, leafy herbs, conifer tree, and spring flowers. With beautiful purity, notable elegance, and silky tannins, it’s just a balanced, elegant style of red that will evolve for 15 years in cold cellars.
