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.

Good full medium red. Redcurrant, mineral and menthol aromas under a veneer of exotic caramel oak. Supple and broad on entry, then quite dry in the middle and not yet filled in. Shows good floral, mineral lift but a bit of a green streak runs throught the wine and gives the finish a distinct dry edge. Can this go anywhere in bottle?
