DUCKHORN Merlot, Three Palms Vineyard 2013

Even better than their regular 'Napa Valley' designate, the 2013 Duckhorn 'Three Palms Vineyard' Merlot is a tremendous effort. Duckhorn has crafted this single vineyard wine since 1978. This vintage has 8% Cabernet, 2% Malbec and 1% Petit Verdot blended in. This decadent Merlot starts with aromatics of coffee grounds, milk chocolate, black cherry and cassis. There are flavors of blackberry preserves, black cherry, black plum and creme de cassis. This structured and rich hot vintage gem will cellar beautifully into the next decade. The texture is plush, dense and just lovely on the mid-palate. (Best 2016-2030) - May, 2016 (OB)
