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.

Medium red with ruby tones. Expressive aromas of currant, licorice, mocha, caramel and menthol, perked up by a floral element. Sweet and pliant in the middle, with expansive flavors of currant, mocha and mint. Edgy acidity toward the back, along with a serious dusting of tannins, shorten the wine's fruit and give it a slightly tart, pinched impression.
