Duckhorn Napa Valley Merlot 2017
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
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.
With dark fruit at its core, this wine offers thick, concentrated power alongside accents of sage and clove. The fruit is black cherry and plum, rich enough to be jammy, with plenty of support from toasted oak and baking spice nuances.
Dried cherry and red berry flavors show lots of hot stone notes, with accents of dried green herbs on the moderately tannic finish. Drink now. 65,000 cases made.
