We received a great honor going into the new year with the inclusion of our 2018 Strayts Merlot in RH Drexel’s Top 25 Wines of 2021.

As anyone who has visited us knows, we are die-hard Petrus and merlot-lovers (in addition to lovers of Rhones and Bordeauxs, in general). In recent years, merlot has experienced quite a comeback; the “Sideways” days are thankfully over.

“Merlot-haters” love to say “why plant Merlot when you can plant Cabernet?” and our simple answer is why mess with something your vineyard and winemaking team do so well!

Long live Merlot & long live our Strayts program!
