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.
88 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2011
(blended with some merlot): Medium red. Currant, chocolate, tobacco and graphite on the nose. Supple and easygoing, with modest nuance to the flavors of black raspberry, cassis, bitter chocolate and truffle. A very ripe 2007 cabernet with moderate definition and grip but plenty of early appeal. Finishes with light, dusty tannins and a note of chocolate.
