About Duckhorn Vineyards
Founded in 1976 by Santa Rosa native Dan Duckhorn, Duckhorn Vineyards was one of California's standard-setters for Merlot in the early 1980s. Over the years, Duckhorn has expanded both its output and its vineyard holdings, with seven estate vineyards on Howell Mountain and the Napa Valley floor and four vineyards in Anderson Valley, Mendocino County. Though production is high in volume (100,000-plus cases/year) it remains high in quality.

($43) Full red. Sexy, oak-influenced aromas of sandalwood, mocha, peat and smoke. Suave and seamless, with good sweetness nicely buffered by sound acidity. Quite oaky. Lush and thick but a bit low-toned, and not especially fruity. Finishes with slightly dusty tannins.
