Meet the wine

Merlot is the second most popular red grape in the U.S. behind Cab Sauv, known for being soft, elegant, and easy drinking. It’s often used in blends (hello, Bordeaux!), and rarely gets the chance to shine on its own in Napa Valley. Smith Devereux isn’t hiding this grape - they’re putting it front and center. This single-vineyard, 100% Merlot from coveted Ibex Vineyard in St. Helena has some serious street cred — in three vintages this wine has won 16 Gold Medals!

“People are always surprised when they drink it. They’re not expecting Merlot to be this playful and complex. It has the structure and power that one would expect of a Cabernet, but it leads you into this gentle, softer side with floral notes and silkiness. It’s such a cool ride.” - Ian Devereux White

Dry red wine - 0g sugar, 140 calories, 4.6 carbs per 5 oz. serving.

2018 Vintage, Ibex Vineyard, St. Helena.

Meet the Maker: Ian Devereux with Guitar

Meet the maker

Musician turned journalist turned winery owner – Ian Devereux is the contrarian vintner behind Maker’s first Merlot. As a wine writer for publications like 7x7, Wine Enthusiast, and Edible Marin he helped tell the stories of wineries all over the world. Eventually he decided he was ready to write his own story, teaming up with music industry vet Steve Smith and winemaker Brett Adams to build Smith Devereux - a winery that's all about making wine approachable and a love of music and experiences.

Smith Devereux believes music and wine are the perfect pairing — their tasting room has a recording studio, and the brand partners with artists and musicians on their philanthropy wine series. The groovy guitar strings on the can are a nod to the influence of music on Ian's life and life work.
