2017 Clos La Chance Meritage
The Estate Red Wine is done in a Bordeaux Style and is a true representation of a
California Meritage. The wine is crafted out of the finest lots of Cabernet Sauvignon,
Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot from the Estate Vineyard. Blends
are a true representative of the winemaker’s craft and the best possible wine he can
make. Utilizing each of the varietals for different components rounds out the blends
mouth feel and creates balance in the final product.

ABOUT THE WINERY
In 1987, co-owners Bill and Brenda Murphy decided to plant a few rows of Chardonnay in their Saratoga backyard, both for landscaping purposes and to realize their dreams of being small-scale vintners. A few years later, the wines produced from this small backyard vineyard were good enough to sell to the public. It was at this point that Clos LaChance formed into a commercial winery.
Clos LaChance Winery takes its name from the small fenced-in area encompassing a vineyard (Clos) and from co-owner Brenda Murphy’s maiden name (LaChance). The Murphy’s chose the Hummingbird as the winery’s symbol for both its aesthetic beauty and its ability to keep other birds away from the grapes.
