This appealing Napa Valley bottling highlights the elegance of the Merlot varietal. Since 1978, Duckhorn Vineyards has been producing Merlot that reflects the rich diversity of the valley's many appellations and offers signature flavors of black cherry, plum and spice.
By Duckhorn. This nicely fruited youngster rings true to Merlot cherries and to the supple feel that marks better versions, and it goes a bit further in sweetening its mix with deft notes of toast and caramel. It runs into a slight streak of finishing toughness, but its tannins are not overbearing and are well in line with its fruit, and while service with food will help smooth its way now, a short stay of some two or three years in the cellar will see it through to its best.
