Duckhorn Vineyard Napa Valley Merlot, California, USA 2017
80% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2.5% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot, 0.5% Malbec with 15 months in French oak 40% new.
The 2017 growing season yielded a beautifully complex expression of Napa Valley Merlot, with inviting aromas of fresh black raspberry, vanilla, tea leaves, pie crust and liquorice. On the palate, luxurious red-fruit flavours of strawberry, plum, Bing cherry and loganberry are supported by silky tannins and a bright, mouth-watering acidity that carries the wine to a lingering finish, with hints of maple, cedar and sweet spice.
A classic expression of Napa Valley Merlot, this wine offers alluring aromas of lush cherry, raspberry, cocoa and freshly baked pie crust. The cherry and raspberry notes are echoed on the silky palate, where fine-grained tannins and flavors of ripe plum, blueberry, licorice and subtle baking spice draw the wine to a long, elegant finish.
