Duckhorn Napa Valley Merlot 2015
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Blended with 12% Cabernet Sauvignon and smaller amounts of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, this wine is thick, dense and dusty in tannin. Flavors of mocha, cherry and clove dominate on the well-integrated, full-bodied palate, finishing in dried herb and coffee bean.
Well-structured, with graphite notes to the dusty red fruit and spice flavors. The caressing finish lingers with some chocolate accents. Drink now through 2021. 47,000 cases made.
