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.

($90) Ruby-red. Blackcurrant, dark chocolate, tar and licorice on the somewhat medicinal nose.Then spicy and bright if a bit lean and minty in the mouth, with cassis, licorice and mineral flavors. The tannins are supple, but the finish shows a light sour edge.
