Well D' you are a wealth of info. Thanks for the research and explanation; I did not realize that the name of the winery was different than what was on the label, but I didn't order it either. Do you like their other wines?
Hawkeye, I have not had the Merriam, but I will look for it. We don't drink much Merlot actually, but I do like it. My all time favorite is from Trecini in Santa Rosa. If you get the chance you should try it- its most definitely a Cab drinkers Merlot.

WOW, Damombo, you are a wealth of information!! Everything I wanted to know . . . then some!

Yes, since you mentioned Merlot, one of the best I ever tasted was from Merriam over in the Healdsburg area. I know Sonoma is your favorite, have you ever tried them?

Well this is interesting - Nine North Wine Co. produces Parcel 41, along with Hullabaloo, Ten Mile, Wooden Nickel, Twenty Bench, and Chasing Lions. Oh, and a little place called Regusci.

Don't know if you remember, last April we tasted a new place (to us) called T-Vine and they used a space on the Regusci property to hold the tasting. Turns out that Jim Regusci is a partner in T-Vine.
Here is what it says on their website: In 2009, a partnership by three friends and fellow vintners – Jim Regusci, Chuck Easley and James Harder – was formed to acquire T-Vine Cellars with the goal of carrying on the T-Vine traditions and enhancing and adding a few interesting grape/vineyard sources for the winemaking team. The T-Vine winemaker / head cellar master for over 10 years, Fernando Candelario remains at the helm and continues to craft the wines and oversee all aspects of winemaking.

Here is what it says on the Nine North website:
The Nine North Wine Company is located in the prestigious Stags Leap District. Owned and operated by Jim Gill and James Harder, two long time friends from Canada who have fulfilled their dreams by moving to the Napa Valley to produce wine.
Working closely with Gill and Harder, is fellow vintner Jim Regusci. The three have developed a unique portfolio of small handcrafted wines. Each brand is under complete ownership and guidance by at least one of the three members. The trio together own Twenty Bench, Seven Sinners and Parcel 41. Individual ownership for the remaining brands follow:

James Harder and his wife Colleen own Jaden Icewine located in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, Canada. In addition, they own James Cole Estate Winery just south of the Stags Leap District on Silverado Trail, which is open for tour and tastings by prior appointment only.

Jim Gill is proprietor of Wooden Nickel, a small lot Petite Syrah that will also celebrate its first release in the spring of 2005.

Jim Regusci and his wife Diana own Regusci Winery in the Stags Leap District. A ghost winery built in 1878, focusing on estate bottlings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and old vine Zinfandel.
All of these fine selections are proudly represented nationally by Nine North Wine Company.

So there ya go! It's a small, small world out there in California - lots of friends working together to make the rest of the world happy
