DUCKHORN Merlot, Napa Valley 2013

The 2013 Duckhorn 'Napa Valley' Merlot is another great effort from this estate. This wine begins with aromatics of black plum, black olive and black cherry with hints of eucalyptus. There are flavors of black cherry, roasted figs, coffee grounds and milk chocolate. This is delicious and open style Merlot that improves considerably with a one hour decant. There is nice richness with a seamless mouthfeel. (Best 2016-2026) - May, 2016 (OB)
