More About This Wine
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.

($52) Good dark red. Currant, plum, mocha and chocolatey oak on the nose, with hints of menthol and exotic flowers. Supple currant and menthol flavors offer a nice sugar/acid balance but also betray a slightly roasted character. A moderately dense merlot that finishes a tad green.
