About The Vineyard
2017 is the fourth year Greyscale Wines produced a single vineyard Merlot from the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. Located in the southern end of the Napa Valley with cooler temperatures, many believe this region provides the best terroir for producing premium Merlot wine. Because the vineyard is near the Mayacamas Mountain benchland, it has a significant component of alluvial soil which contains organic material making the area quite fertile. It it planted to Merlot Clone 181 that traces its origins to Pomerol in Bordeaux.
