Vertical Tasting of Paloma Merlot

Join us for a very special Merlot-filled afternoon hosted by winemaker, Sheldon Richards! 

This vertical tasting of Paloma’s 2004 to 2009 vintages offers a delightful journey through the varied expressions of aged wine. With three vintages made by first generation winemaker Jim Richards, and three vintages made by second generation and current winemaker Sheldon Richards, each vintage’s uniqueness will be on full display. It also includes the exceptional 2006 Paloma Merlot, our third vintage to appear on the Wine Spectator’s Top 100. We invite you to come find your favorites. 

This rare tasting experience will take place on the Paloma Vineyard deck, providing a stunning panoramic view overlooking the picturesque Napa Valley. Paired with a selection of charcuterie, surrounded by rolling vineyards and fluttering hummingbirds, and bathed in the warm glow of the California sun, you’ll have the perfect backdrop to enhance the flavors and aromas of the Paloma Merlot. 

Don’t miss this opportunity to immerse yourself in a sensory journey that combines fine wine, breathtaking views, and regaling stories of past vintages from the winemaker. 

Note: Verticals of 2004-2009 Paloma Merlot will only be available for purchase for attendee’s at the event.
