Duckhorn Napa Merlot 2012 750ML          
Sku: 50740

Co-founded by Dan and Margaret Duckhorn in 1976, Duckhorn Vineyards has been crafting Bordeaux varietals from the Napa Valley for over 30 years. Duckhorn Vineyards' seven meticulously farmed estate vineyards, located throughout the various microclimates of the Napa Valley, are an essential element in making wines of the highest quality. One of the first wineries to focus on Merlot as a premium varietal, Duckhorn Vineyards now produces four elegant Merlot and four distinctive Cabernet Sauvignon bottlings to showcase the characteristics of its various vineyard sites. In addition, the winery produces a full-flavored Sauvignon Blanc, and an exceptional red Bordeaux blend under the Decoy label.

Tasting notes
Bright, lifted red fruit elements with darker, moreextracted layers. This depth is on display in the aromatics, where notes of Asian spice, red current, plum and blueberry crisp are supported by a subtle streak of earthiness. The palate is both velvety and balanced, with flavors that echo the aromas. These flavors are held together by granular tannins and accented by oak-inspired notes of molasses and nougat.

Rating

"Benefiting from a larger percentage of ThreePalms Vineyard fruit than ever before, this majority Merlot also holds Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. The result is a density of rich, soft and spicy red fruit supported by structured tannins. This is ready for the table and a wide range of pairings." Wine Enthusiast, 91 Points

"Focused and deeply structured, with bold blackberry and cedar aromas and flavors, accented with a plush texture and notes of cherry, tobacco and mineral. Drink now through 2022." Wine Spectator, 90 Points

"A fresh style of merlot with light chocolate and blueberry character. Medium body, firm tannins and a crisp finish. Food matcher. Drink now." James Suckling, 90 Points
