Forward Kidd is a premium red blend from the Merryvale Family of Wines portfolio. Their winemaking team has focused on using an untraditional set of varietals to create a wine that expresses the lush, rich and expressive flavors of a few select vineyard sites throughout Napa Valley.
The name was derived from two distinct soil series, Forward and Kidd, and pays homage to the over 100 soil variations found in Napa that contribute to the great depth and character of wines from this region. Forward is loam based soil & Kidd is a gravelly loamed based soil composition.
Selected from multiple vineyard sites throughout the Napa Valley, the winemaking for this blend starts in the soil. Aromas of dark cherry, blueberry & raspberry jam, with barrel notes of cedar and baking spices. Medium body structure supports soft tannins, and moderate acidity creates a fresh and balanced finish.
