Duckhorn Vineyards Napa Valley Merlot 2013

$49.99

One of California's most popular Merlots - get the new release while it's still available. The Duckhorn 2013 Napa Valley Merlot is one of the finest Merlots we've ever tasted.  Blended to offer the complexity and balance of a young wine, while embodying the diversity of the whole Napa Valley appellation. This wine is medium-bodied and balanced with a smooth entry, integrated soft tannins, and a long finish. The aroma is lifted with raspberry, red currant, blueberry, cherry cola, and delicate spice. The flavors are polished with blackberry, plum, black cherry, toast, and a hint of herb.  If you are a die-hard Cabernet lover this is a Merlot for you.

Disappointing. This is overpriced but mediocre Napa Merlot.

Founded in 1976, Duckhorn was one of the first wineries to pioneer Merlot as a premium varietal, now makes several stylish Merlots. Big red berry aromas with oak and spice. Plum and black cherry, almost chewy, with sweet cedar and fresh spice flavors. Well balanced with savory tannins, lingering with an ending that highlights the fruit. Very nice!

Duckhorn appear to be making a comeback, albeit rather slowly. Good merlot from a great vintage. Good grip, structure, and solid presentation.

Oak. Vanilla? aroma. Strong structure. Spicy. Concentrated. That’s merlot. One hour, it started showing various flavor, chocolate. 2nd day, much better. Much deep. @1200/375, Winona - XH, 190310-190314

One of the few Merlots we drink. Delicious with my veal chop.
