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.

($85) Medium ruby-red. Very ripe aromas of currant, plum, mocha, loam and chocolate. Sweet, plush and creamy, with exotic oak notes of chocolate and mocha. An immediately accessible, sweet style of cabernet with rather soft, ripe tannins.
