2013 Praxis Merlot, Alexander Valley Sonoma County

  • Silver Medal, 2016 Sonoma County Harvest Fair
  • Silver Medal, Sonoma-Marin Fair
  • Silver Medal, 2016 Orange County Wine Competition

The grapes for this wine come from a vineyard on a rise in the heart of Alexander Valley – the same vineyard that garnered our 2004 Merlot the title of Best American Merlot Under $20 in Food & Wine Magazine (October, 2007).

Classic deep purple in color with red highlights. Rose petal, violet, cherry and plum aromas are accented by notes of cedar and toasted coconut. Black cherry, fig and blueberry flavors are complemented by a hint of vanilla and spice on the finish. This juicy, plush wine has a lingering finish with soft, medium tannins and firm acidity.

Winery Details

Praxis Cellars

Owner:
Bill Arbios
Founded:
2000
Location:
Sonoma County, CA

In 2000, Bill Arbios created Praxis Cellars to broaden the scope of the wines he produced. Arbios is our “serious” wine: 100% Cabernet, 14K gold label, etc. so Bill wanted to create a distinct label for our other wines. Praxis is derived from the Greek word for practice as a doctor or lawyer practices their craft. Praxis was also a pre-Arts and Crafts philosophy in Europe espousing the importance of striving for perfection while knowing that it will never be fully achieved. Since launching our second label, we have also found that it is a moon of the Klingon home planet in Star Trek and a verb for domination in an on-line vampire game.

In the Praxis wines, Bill can practice his craft with different wine varietals from various wine regions of California. Although Bill’s winemaking reputation was built upon his blended meritage wines at Lyeth, our Arbios and Praxis wines varietals are not blended at all. The wines are all 100% of their grape varietal and most are from a single vineyard, so Bill can play with the expression of the fruit in a number of ways such as the amount and type of oak he uses. The Praxis wines are priced about half that of the Arbios Cabernet in the hopes that you will enjoy them with every day dinners as well as special occasions. Bill meant these wines to be enjoyed with food – the supporting cast to enhance a meal – though I must say I love a glass of the Sauvignon Blanc before dinner.
