Duckhorn Vineyards Three Palms Vineyard Merlot 2013

$89.99

Duckhorn's rare Three Palms Vineyard Merlot is now available - limited. 94 Points Wine Enthusiast: "Duckhorn's Three Palms bottling is one of the oldest and most consistent Merlot vineyard designations in California and this is a classic example. The wine always is very tannic but dry and rich and complex in mineral-laden cherries and currants, with just the right application of new oak. You can decant it now for several hours and enjoy with a dramatically charred streak, but it will develop beautifully through 2019, at least." A sumptuous incarnation of Three Palms Vineyard Merlot, this mouth-filling and age-worthy wine displays suppleness, balance and structure, with seamless integration between lush fruit and new French oak. The aroma offers layered elements of fresh baked cherry pie, red licorice, and vanilla bean. On the palate, juicy boysenberry and blackberry layers intermingle with notes of strawberry, cherry, orange rind, and cinnamon spice, accented by earth tones and subtle oak.

We had the 2013 Vintage on 3/13-14/20. A wonderful fruit forward, full bodied Merlot. A beautiful bouquet. Tastes of blackberry, blueberry and chocolate. Fine tannins. Really good.

Full throttle merlot. Big but not over powering. Rich but not too sweet. Slight bite but would go away if decanted.
